Oscar Nunez is coming back to TV.

This time, The Office alum will star alongside Happy Endings‘ Eliza Coupe in the upcoming USA Network comedy Benched, about a corporate attorney whose breakdown leaves her working as a public defender. Nunez, who joins as a series regular, will play a colleague of Nina’s.

The single-cam comedy, from executive producers and writers Michaela Watkins (Saturday Night Live) and Damon Jones (Halfway Home), also stars Jay Harrington, who plays a public defender at Nina’s office.

Since signing off with The Office almost year ago, Nunez has appeared on It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

and has a role in the upcoming Chilean miner movie The 33, which stars Antonio Banderas.

Benched received a series order from the USA Network in January.
