Ellie Kemper may be saying goodbye to Dunder Mifflin, but she's not done with NBC.
According to EW, the "Office" actress has landed the lead role in NBC's "Brenda Forever."
Kemper will play Brenda in the pilot, in which the "past and present are interwoven to give a unique portrait of how a chubby, awkward, but incredibly confident 13-year-old grew up to be a 31-year-old woman who still marches to the beat of her own drum," according to EW.
In addition to playing Erin on "The Office" for the past four years, Kemper also recently had a guest role on "The Mindy Project."
