Two of The Office‘s most well-known accountants are reuniting for a new comedy project, but they’re a long way from the cubicles of Dunder Mifflin.

Angela Kinsey and Brian Baumgartner are traveling back in time for the History original comedy series The Crossroads of History, which is a part of the cable channel’s new late-night comedy block Night Class.

The Crossroads of History retells largely unknown yet factually correct moments in history with a comedic spin. In their episode (airing Thursday, March 3), Baumgartner plays John Parker, President Abraham Lincoln’s alcoholic bodyguard who leaves his post at the Ford Theatre to get a drink from the bartender, portrayed by Kinsey.

Other Night Class programs include Great Minds with Dan Harmon, which features the Community creator being visited by prominent historical figures, and How to Lose the Presidency, which highlights the most embarrassing moments on the campaign trail.
