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.
