Funnyman Rainn Wilson's The Office spin-off has been shelved by bosses at U.S. Tv network NBC.

Earlier this year (12) the comedian shot a pilot episode of The Farm, which centred around his character Dwight Schrute's life away from the office running a beetroot farm and bed and breakfast.

However, Wilson took to his page on Monday (29Oct12) to let fans know the project has not been given the greenlight.

He wrote, "Farm Update: Nbc has passed on moving forward with The Farm Tv show. Had a blast making the pilot - onwards & upwards! Keep watching the Awesome final season of The Office. Many surprises & hilariousities coming!"
