"Uncle Stan" is a potential spin-off of the American television series "The Office" that is currently in discussion. The show would focus on the character of Stanley Hudson, portrayed by actor Leslie David Baker, who became a fan-favorite during the original series. While no official confirmation has been made, the idea for the spin-off is generating excitement among fans of "The Office."
Leslie David Baker recently launched a Kickstarter campaign to fund a pilot episode for "Uncle Stan." The campaign aims to raise $300,000, and if successful, the pilot will be developed into a full series. Baker has expressed his desire to explore the character of Stanley Hudson further and give him his own show.
In terms of plot, "Uncle Stan" would see Stanley leaving Scranton to retire in California. However, his plans are disrupted when his nephew, Lucky, shows up unexpectedly, seeking a job at Uncle Stan's business. The sitcom-style format would explore the dynamic between Uncle Stan and his mischievous nephew.
Baker has received support from several former cast members, including Brian Baumgartner (Kevin Malone) and Kate Flannery (Meredith Palmer), who have agreed to appear in the pilot episode. The Kickstarter campaign includes various incentives for backers, such as autographed photos and opportunities to meet the cast.
While "Uncle Stan" is not yet a confirmed spin-off, the potential project has garnered attention and anticipation from fans of "The Office." The Kickstarter campaign will determine if there is enough interest and financial support to bring the show to life.
