Calling All Office Fans!!!

Okay so here's the deal.

I'm applying for a few writing-based internships at NBC. As part of the application process I wrote a spec script for the show I know best, The Office. I'm pretty laid back when it comes to most things, but when it comes to my writing I am a perfectionist. Therefore, I refuse to send in my draft until I know that it is the best draft it could possibly be ever in the history of ever.

At this point you're thinking, "Okay Paige, so you're borderline anal-retentive about your TV shows, what does that have to do with me?" IT HAS EVERYTHING TO DO WITH YOU. Sometimes stuff sounds amazing on paper but falls flat the second it's read aloud, so what I want to do is have a table reading for the rough draft of my script.

For the uninitiated, a table reading is where a bunch of actors/writers get together and read a script aloud and with feeling as if they were performing it to get a sense of how the script flows. I unfortunately am only one person, so I need people! If you love The Office and you are in Southern California. I WANT YOU to read my script.

Do you wake up every morning wishing you had Andy Bernard's sweet acapella skills? Or Stanley's crossword abilities? NOW YOU CAN! Well, at least in an imaginary sense for the half an hour or so the reading will take. Here are the roles available...
