Listen up, fans of The Office, and set your DVRs for after the Super Bowl: Kate Flannery, who plays Meredith on the popular NBC comedy, tells OK! that a very special episode is set to air right after the Super Bowl.


"I’m really excited about it," she told OK! at the BAFTA/L.A. 15th Awards Season Tea Party on Jan. 10 in Beverly Hills. "I think our producers and writers have completely outdone themselves. I feel like this special episode is going to capture a whole new audience of people who have never seen us before. I think this is a homerun."


Er, maybe she means a touchdown?


The hour-long episode will also feature a mini movie within the show, starring Jessica Alba and Jack Black, who Kate says were "cool" to have around.


"It’s going to be a great Super Bowl and all I can say is that I hope people are not too wasted by the end so they’ll actually watch!" she jokes, adding, "Wait, it’ll probably be funnier if they’re all drunk. Bean dip, booze and beer, I mean come on."


All jokes aside (which can be hard when dealing with such a hilarious show), Kate stands behind The Office 100 percent.


"What’s great about our show is that it just keeps getting better," she tells OK!. "That’s very rare in TV. I’m so proud to be a part of it."
