UNIVERSAL CITY, Calif. - July 14, 2009 -- This summer, NBC's "The Office" may be on summer hiatus, but the mockumentary continues to unfold online.

New digital features allow fans to follow Twitter conversations between characters, vote on favorite "Office" moments, putt with "The Office" Golf Game for iPhone and iPod Touch, complete summer tasks on the Dunder Mifflin Infinity social network, and much more.

After a full day of enjoying the show's many digital features, fans can reward themselves by watching full episodes as well as original "Office" webisodes, which also feature exclusive commentary by the main characters. And even the webisodes present their own digital features such as "blackmailing a friend" with an entertaining, customizable video threat.

Kelly and Ryan Twitter Conversation:

Look to Twitter to follow characters Kelly Kapoor (@IAmKellyFierce ) and Ryan Howard (@veRY_ANgelic) while they hash out their on-again, off-again, but always entertaining love/hate spat. Check it out at: http://www.nbc.com/The_Office/twitter/kelly-ryan-twitter.shtml

"The Office" Golf Game for iPhone/iPod Touch

"The Office" Golf Game lets users play their own mini putt golf from the comfort of their own office, or wherever their iPhone or iPod touch takes them. They can putt through "Office"-based obstacles on four custom nine-hole courses, challenge friends, and even compare their course ranking with other iPhone and iPod touch golfers. The new "Office" Golf Game is available for $1.99 from Apple's App Store on iPhone and iPod touch or at www.itunes.com/appstore/.

Dunder Mifflin Infinity:

The Dunder Mifflin Infinity Social Network (http://www.dundermifflininfinity.com/) will be launching fun games throughout the summer. The most recent activity in the series is "Where's Dwight?," where users can search through several historically inspired photos to find their favorite "Office" nerd, Dwight Schrute. Users' scores will accumulate between now and the end of August, with the overall winner receiving prizes from NBC.com.

Office Webisodes:

NBC.com launched an all-new web series, "The Office: Blackmail" which stars Creed Bratton and follows the office oddball's attempt to blackmail his coworkers at Dunder Mifflin. B.J. Novak, writer and co-executive producer of "The Office," directs the production.

Creed's misconduct can be followed online on NBC.com, where fans can imitate his quest by sending joke blackmail video threats to friends. Other exclusive digital features include Creed's video commentary on the web series and a viral propaganda reel uncovered by his "victims."

Other Office Content:

In the all-new Look-A-Like Gallery, fans can submit pictures of themselves as their favorite Office character.

Fans can also look to the show page to see updates of Dwight's blog "Schrute-Space" and Meredith's blog "Sex & The Electric City". The Scranton Newsletter will also feature new content all summer long.
