Craig Robinson, known on "The Office" as Darryl Philbin, has received his own series order from NBC.

The comedic actor was seen this year in the film "This Is The End" and as a guest star on Fox's "Brooklyn Nine-Nine." Now, a year after NBC ordered the pilot, Deadline reports that Robinson's single-camera comedy, "Mr. Robinson," has finally received a six-episode order.

The series stars Robinson as a musician who "gets a job as a music teacher at a middle school. While teaching the kids everything from rock to the blues, he simultaneously learns how to put the school’s rules to the test," according to Deadline.

Sounds like a TV version of "School of Rock," which means we're totally excited.

"Mr. Robinson" is slated to premiere in Fall 2014 on NBC.
