'Office' alum Oscar Nunez joins USA comedy 'Benched'
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.
