'Psych': 'Office Space is ... the hardest I've ever laughed' at an episode, says EP Steve Franks
"Psych" is winding down its seventh season with the last four new episodes of the season (the musical will air later this year as a special two-hour event). Wednesday's (May 8) episode is titled "Office Space" and executive producer Steve Franks tells Zap2it it's an especially funny offering.
"'Office Space' is quite honestly the hardest I've ever laughed at a 'Psych' episode and it's not even one that I wrote," says Franks, which is high praise indeed.
Franks also teases for those "Psych"-Os that might want a little bit of trivia that the episode title is "the most inside-joke title of all time," and not, as we wondered, a nod to the movie of the same name.
"We had pitched an episode, a space-themed episode with like a space capsule. It not only was more expensive than we could ever afford, it was also something we had to scrap very late in the game," says Franks. "So in a tribute to our abandoned astronaut episode, this episode is called 'Office Space.' That's some big inside joke information for anybody paying attention."
Watch a preview of "Office Space" above. "Psych" airs Wednesday nights at 10 p.m. ET/PT on USA.
