His days as Jim from The Office may be over, but John Krasinski is still firmly rooted at NBC, this time as producer.

EW confirms that Krasinski and his production shingle, Sunday Night, sold two comedies to NBC in an overall deal with Universal TV. Krasinski and Allyson Seeger will executive produce both single-camera, untitled projects, working closely with Sunday Night’s Mike Sablone.

The first project comes from writer Shawn Wines and executive producer Aaron Kaplan, and focuses on a failed law student who turns to a career in garbage collecting in New York City. The second project is written by writing duo Josh Siegal and Dylan Morgan, and focuses on a middle-aged ad executive who starts his own agency in his garage from the ground up after being let go from his job.

Krasinski is not expected to star in either of the projects.
