From the network that brought you "If you haven't seen it, it's new to you" comes the latest in TV-rerun technology: the "newpeat."

NBC will offer up a pair of "Office" reruns on Thursday, March 15 that will incorporate previously unaired material. The episodes "Traveling Salesmen" and "The Return," which first aired in January, will be re-edited to include deleted scenes that have not been seen either on TV or in the deleted scenes NBC posts on the show's official site, a network rep says.

"It's about giving something extra to our wonderful fans," executive producer Greg Daniels says. "Their loyalty must be rewarded somehow, and we don't have the budget for 10 million muffin baskets."

The network is no doubt hoping that the promise of new material in the "Office" repeats, which will air from 8 to 9 p.m. ET, will draw curious fans of the show who might otherwise skip a rerun. A deleted scene from "The Return" that was available online, for instance, explains the absence of Dunder Mifflin employee Andy (Ed Helms) from subsequent episodes.

NBC is also planning an "Office" marathon for Thursday, March 29. Five episodes of the show will air that night, enveloping a new episode of "Andy Barker, P.I." at 9:30, with put-upon Dunder Mifflin worker Toby (Paul Lieberstein) hosting. The episodes, which stretch back to season one's "Diversity Day," will showcase the HR nightmares foisted on Toby by branch manager Michael Scott (Steve Carell).
