The onetime comedian is still ironing out his specific Office hours, so it remains unclear which installment he’ll preside over.

This will mark Favreau’s second time calling the shots on a half-hour comedy. He previously directed an episode of Fox’s late, great Undeclared. His other small screen directing credits include Jimmy Kimmel Live! and the pilot for NBC’s Revolution, on which he also serves as an exec producer.
