John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant have teamed up for another workplace comedy, but unlike their time on The Office, they’re now both exec producing. Adult Swim has ordered Dream Corp, LLC., an animated series that includes the duo among its team of executive producers, reports Variety.

Dream Corp, LLC. comes from creator Daniel Stessen (The Gold Sparrow) and is said to be “absurd.” The series will center on a dream therapy facility where a less-than-stellar group of scientists, led by Dr. Roberts (Jon Gries), will record the dreams of the patients. The series will incorporate rotoscope technology, which is when live-action footage is traced over frame-by-frame, a first for an Adult Swim original series. Allyson Seeger, who works with Krasinski under his Sunday Night production banner, will executive produce alongside him and Merchant.

Merchant is known for co-creating and co-directing the British version of The Office, and then serving as an executive producer on the U.S. remake. He has often teamed up with fellow British comedian Ricky Gervais, with whom he also co-created Extras — and he co-hosts The Ricky Gervais Show. Merchant has appeared in front of the camera both as an actor and stand-up comedian.

Krasinski’s first major TV role was as Jim on the American version of The Office, which ran from 2005-2013. He’s gone on to appear in a number of films, as well as take on screenwriting, producing, and directing duties. Most recently, Krasinski has been working as an executive producer on Spike’s musical comedy show Lip Sync Battle.

Dream Corp, LLC. has been on Adult Swim’s radar for quite a while now; the network announced that the series’ pilot would be developed back in 2014. A premiere date for Dream, LLC. has yet to be announced.
