Sterling's credits include Sarah Silverman Program" and HBO's recently launched offering "Girls." In addition to serving as a consulting producer on "The Office" since 2006, Forrester, like Sterling, worked on the Fox animated comedy "King of the Hill," which "The Office" co-creator Greg Daniels also co-created.

Meanwhile, "The Office" continues its state of upheaval. Former "Boston Legal" star James Spader, who stepped into the starring role of the series for its eighth season following the departure of Steve Carell, will not be returning for the show's next season.

No word yet on who will replace Spader.

Deadline first reported the news.
