The Office BFFs Come to NYC; The Full Monty Returns As TV Series for Disney+ and Hulu

Angela Kinsey and Jenna Fischer

The Town Hall has announced a special evening with actors Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey as they reflect on their new book The Office BFFs: Tales of The Office from Two Best Friends Who Were There (Dey Street). The live evening will take place on Wednesday, May 18, 2022 at 7PM at The Town Hall (123 W. 43rd Street), the day after The Office BFFs is released. Despite portraying Dunder Mifflin frenemies Pam Beesly and Angela Martin on the hit television show The Office, Jenna Fischer and Angela Kinsey have been best friends for over eighteen years. For nine seasons they battled over party planning, relationship advice, and baby names, while behind the scenes they supported each other through life-changing events like marriage, motherhood, and careers that took them all over the globe.

The Office BFFs: Tales of The Office from Two Best Friends Who Were There

In The Office BFFs, the ladies share heartfelt and humorous stories about their time together making The Office, giving readers insights into everything from their first meeting on the pilot to the shooting of iconic episodes like "Booze Cruise" and "Work Bus" to their hilarious adventures on the red carpet. In candid conversations complete with personal mementos and photographs, Jenna and Angela take a dive deep into their special friendship and how it's evolved from having lunch together in their on-set trailers to creating their own media company and hugely successful podcast, Office Ladies. The Office BFFs is a testament to a beloved TV show and to the power of best friendship as told by two great storytellers who love to gab.


The Full Monty

Disney+ announces a brand-new limited series The Full Monty from the makers of the original British hit comedy film. The UK Original series will premiere on Disney+ globally, Star+ in Latin America and Hulu in the U.S. Almost twenty-five years on from the BAFTA-winning film, the limited series will follow the original band of brothers as they navigate the post-industrial city of Sheffield and society's crumbling healthcare, education and employment sectors. The series will explore the brighter, sillier and more humane way forward where communal effort can still triumph over adversity. The new original series on Disney+ will see the original lead cast reprise their fan-favourite roles including Robert Carlyle (Trainspotting, Once Upon A Time) as Gaz, Mark Addy (Game of Thrones, A Knight's Tale) as Dave, Lesley Sharp (Before We Die, Scott and Bailey) as Jean, Hugo Speer (Britannia, Shadow and Bone) as Guy, Paul Barber (The Dumping Ground, Gloves Off) as Horse, Steve Huison (The Royle Family, The Navigators) as Lomper, Wim Snape (The Beaker Girls, Gentleman Jack) as Nathan and Tom Wilkinson (Batman Begins, Michael Clayton) as Gerald in this heartfelt and fiercely funny world of working-class heroes in the North of England. The series will also introduce a whole new cast of children and grandchildren of the returning characters.

The comedy drama series (8x60') also reunites the original film's Academy Award-winning screenwriter Simon Beaufoy (Slumdog Millionaire) and producer Uberto Pasolini (Nowhere Special), co-commissioned by Disney+ and FX.
