While one door closes, another door opens for 'The Office' star Ellie Kemper. TVline reports that the actress has signed on to star in a new single-camera comedy pilot for the NBC network.
BRENDA FOREVER, written and executive produced by Andrew Leeds and David Lampson, will feature "stories from Brenda Miller's past and present, which would mesh together to give a unique portrait of how a chubby, awkward but incredibly confident 13-year-old grew up to be a 31-year-old woman who still does her own thing."
Best known for her role as Erin Hannon in NBC's The Office, Kemper was seen in supporting roles in the films Bridesmaids and 21 Jump Street.
