THE OFFICE (NBC) - Michael Schur, a co-executive producer on the series, has inked a two-year, seven-figure overall deal with producer Universal Media Studios. The pact, his first to date, covers his duties on the Emmy-winning comedy as well as the show's upcoming companion half-hour starring Amy Poehler (which he's co-creating alongside Greg Daniels). He'll also develop new series projects for the studio in addition to the Poehler project. Schur also recurs in front of the camera on "The Office" as Mose, the beet farming cousin of Rainn Wilson's Dwight Schrute.
