Pilot Scoop: Office Vet Angela Kinsey Joins Fox's Family Comedy The Gabriels

The Gabriels Pilot SpoilersThe Office‘s Angela Kinsey has joined Fox’s comedy pilot The Gabriels, TVLine has learned.

From Justin Hurwitz (The League) and Andre Gurland, the prospective series follows an introverted, neurotic Wisconsin family that lives in a community of over-sharers.

Kinsey comes aboard the project as Gail Gabriel, the therapist wife of Rob Riggle’s leading man. Not unlike the actress’ longtime Office alter ego, this character has a knack for making people feel pretty awful about themselves — only on The Gabriels she’ll be be impacting her patients, not her co-workers.

    i thought she was creating a pilot with Rachel Harris. What happened to that?

      That’s what I thought, and I hate when TV Line reports on a story and completely omits “what we’re all wondering part.” They could at least say there’s no word on what happened to the other pilot yet. I’m wondering if it fell through or if this is like a second option for her, even though putting her in second option for another pilot sounds odd.

      It might not have gotten greenlight or it could still be in the early development stages and she wants to have a job? Either way, I’m happy that she might still be on TV come fall.

    I assumed with The Office ending, she’d be looking for a completely different kind of role. Playing a pinched, prudish, frigid sort can be fun and funny, but if I were an actress, I’d be a little afraid of being typecast. Based on everything else I’ve seen, she’s definitely not like that in real life.

    So far so good on the casting. I’m really looking forward to this show.
