IT’S HAPPENING! The Office Spinoff has reached its funding goal! Uncle Stan is happening, but what do we know so far? Rather a lot, including the full plot and the fact Leslie David Baker will be back to play Stanley.
The plot of the show was posted on the Kickstarter page;
“After enjoying his retirement in Florida, carving wood, enjoying the white sand beaches, and dancing to old disco, Uncle Stan (Leslie David Baker) gets a call from his nephew Lucky in Los Angeles asking for help with his two kids and running his motorcycle/flower shop. With his business failing, his kids growing up without enough attention, and on the brink of losing his patience with the cast of characters he has working in the shop, Lucky is going to need all the help he can get from no-nonsense Uncle Stan.
When Lucky picks up his uncle at LAX in a motorcycle with a sidecar laden with flowers and no room for his luggage, Uncle Stan knows that he will be in for quite the adventure and challenge. With his unique personality and business acumen that he has acquired over the decades, Stan is sure to clash once or twice with the wild personalities that Lucky has worked in the shop. With his lady friend and soon-to-be fiancé completely in the dark, Uncle Stan must take swift action to make sure that not only his nephew comes out on top, but that he is able to maintain some semblance of his previously comfortable lifestyle moving forward.”
The Office Finale saw Stanley head over to Florida. We all witnessed that heartbreaking scene where Phyllis shows us what Stanley creates for her at his home. But as the years have passed, it seems Stanley’s life has radically changed. His dream of relaxing in the sun with a cocktail has gone, with his lifestyle upended by his nephew. Will there be mention of his old life back at the paper company? Will his time dealing with Michael come in handy?
Today the exciting news has come that they have reached their $300,000 funding goal and the pilot is going into production!

The show is not being created by a network such as NBC instead it’s being privately created. Meaning they have FULL control over what it is and who is in it!
We spoke to co-creator of the spin-off Sardar Khan and asked him if we might see some cameos from the Office cast and guess what he said…. YES! So not only will we see Stanley back but you’ll also be seeing other cast members!
