While promoting their new book Office BFFs: Tales of The Office From Two Best Friends Who Were There, the Office Ladies podcast co-hosts recalled that the cast thinking that The Office wouldn't work with so many key people exiting for other projects.

She adds that Greg Daniels invited the cast to pitch storylines for their characters for the final season.

I mean, that was just such a gracious thing that he did."

In 2005, we were introduced to the “World’s Best Boss,” Michael Scott (Steve Carell), and his Dunder Mifflin gang of paper company employees.

The two, who also host the Office Ladies podcast, which provides commentary on each episode, are sharing behind-the-scenes memories and more than 400 photos from their time on the show in their new book, The Office BFFs (May 17, Dey Street Books). “We were the two gals who showed up to work with disposable cameras,” Fischer says. “We were in sync from the beginning, and I hope the book makes it clear just how close the cast and crew were—and still are.” More from the “best friends forever” here.
