Beloved actor and writer Ricky Gervais, creator and star of the original British offering The Office, will write an episode of the American version starring Steve Carell. The episode will be co-written by Stephen Merchant. While Gervais and Merchant have each served as an executive producer on the show, they have not yet written an episode. The news comes from Gervais' spokesman, and there's no word on what the episode will be about or when it will air just yet.
