Tradecraft: Adam Pally & Paul Lieberstein Sell Spy Sitcom to Fox

Weirdly, I always wanted to see Toby, the H.R. rep from The Office (the American version, that is) in a spy situation. And now, according to Deadline, that might happen... though they're no indication yet that Paul Lieberstein (who played Toby as well as serving as a writer and producer on the series) would be involved in front of the camera as well as behind. But he and Adam Pally (The Mindy Project) have sold a spy comedy pitch to Fox. Lieberstein will co-write the script with actor/comedian Jon Gabrus (Comedy Bang Bang), and the latter might also star. According to the trade, "Details about the plot are scarce, but the show is described as a comedic take on the spy genre." So that's all we've got to work with for now. As many spy series as there are on television right now, what we're missing is a live action spy comedy. So let's hope this one goes to series!
