If you’re wondering why this tiring and flat effort seems like a failed NBC pilot to pair with ‘The Office’, it may be because it’s written and directed by Toby himself, Paul Lieberstein. Milana Vayntrub, Ken Jeong, and Jay Pharoah are along for the ride in this workplace comedy set in the world of Zoom calls and telecommutes. Despite the promising cast, ‘Out of Office’ lands with a deafening thud. It’s lazy, boring, and, frankly, doesn’t belong on a channel with comedy in its name. If only it had stayed on mute.
