As many continue to wait for a reboot of the beloved NBCUniversal series The Office, Leslie David Baker, who played the lovable grumpy Stanley Hudson has now launched a Kickstarter for a spin-off for his character.
On the campaign page, The Office is not explicitly due to copyright issues but the description notes The Uncle Stan Show will see Stanley come out of retirement.
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 decades, Stan is sure to clash once or twice with the wild personalities that Lucky has working 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.
Baker and his business partner Sardar Khan put the campaign together and are asking for $300,000 USD by August 1 to proceed into production. Those that fund the project can receive a digital copy of the script, a walk-on role and an executive producer credit.
