NBC.COM UNVEILS NBC'S EMMY-WINNING HIT 'THE OFFICE'S' NEWEST WEB SERIES "THE MENTOR" ON MARCH 4

"THE MENTOR" FEATURES ERIN AS SHE UNDERGOES TOTAL MAKEOVER AFTER TAKING ON A TORTUROUS ACCOUNTING COURSE TAUGHT BY UNFORGIVING ANGELA

UNIVERAL CITY, Calif. - March 4, 2010 - NBC.com unveils "The Mentor," the latest web series from NBC's Emmy Award-winning comedy "The Office," starting March 4 with four all-new episodes. Fans of "The Office" and the show's previous web series such as "Subtle Sexuality" and "The Accountants" can find "The Mentor" online at http://www.nbc.com/The_Office/webisodes.

The plot of the four webisodes begins as office coordinator Erin Hannon (Ellie Kemper) decides to broaden her professional horizons with lessons in accounting. With unforgiving Angela Martin (Angela Kinsey) as her mentor, Erin gets some hard schooling in comportment, dress, and on occasion, number-crunching.

Fellow Dunder Mifflin staffers begin to wonder if the new mentor relationship between Angela and Erin will put a strain on Erin's BFF ("best-friends-forever") Kelly Kapoor. Will Erin crack under Angela's strict supervision? Will Kevin (Brian Baumgartner) learn how to accurately use a calculator? Fans can find out answers to all of these questions and more at NBC.com.

"The Mentor" web series was directed by Kelly Cantley and written by Nate Federman and Jonathan Hughes. "The Mentor" also stars Creed Bratton, Kate Flannery and Oscar Nunez.
