Ken Kwapis, who serves as occasional director to The Office, has brought us some of the most hilarious episodes of the award-winning NBC sitcom including Diversity Day, Sexual Harassment, Casino Night, and Gay Witch Hunt, just to name a few. Fortunately, fans have more episodes from Kwapis to look forward to as he has helmed a two-part special episode, which airs tonight and next Thursday, February 12.

The much awaited installment is entitled Lecture Circuit and features Michael (Steve Carell) going on a speaking tour of the other branches to explain Scranton's relative success, with Pam (Jenna Fischer) as his driver. Back at the Scranton office, Dwight (Rainn Wilson) and Jim (John Krasinski), who are now spearheading the party planning committee, forget a birthday and must face sever consequences. As for Andy (Ed Helms), he finds himself falling in love with someone he should not.
But that's not all. Aside from Lecture Circuit, Ken Kwapis will also be helming an episode of The Office come April.
"I will be directing the 100th episode of the series," Kwapis told Entertainment Weekly's Michael Ausiello. "A lot of romantic foibles including with Jim and Pam but in the next few episodes, everybody will have an emotional pratfall. I have not seen a script for the 100th yet, but I am sure they will outdo themselves.''
Meanwhile, Jenna Fischer has also dished on a few ideas about for her character's impending wedding.
"I really want Jim and Pam to get married at Schrute farms," she said. "And I also want there to be something about the wedding that you don't see on camera. Maybe you just hear it, or there is a photo at the end, or someone recounts it. But I want Jim and Pam to have a private moment at some point. Because they are a part of the documentary all the time, I think it would be nice for them to have some little thing that is just theirs. That would make all the romantics in our fan base happy.''
