From the minds of the hilarious and irreverent Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy, "Workaholics" is a single camera comedy featuring three friends who work together as telemarketers from 9 to 5 and live together from 5 to 9. Dress codes, deadlines and waking up before noon are not things these guys are used to. They do their jobs and sometimes they even do them well, but they show up late, leave drunk and always live for the day… even if they don’t know what day it is. The third season of "Workaholics" debuts on May 29 at 10:30 p.m.
"Workaholics" is co-created by Mail Order Comedy's Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck and 5th Year’s Dominic Russo and Connor Pritchard. The series stars Anderson, Devine and Holm and is directed by Newacheck. Kevin Etten serves as the show runner.
"Workaholics" is executive produced by Mail Order Comedy, Etten, 5th Year's Russo and Pritchard, Avalon Television's Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin, Jon Thoday and Isaac Horne as well as Gigapix Studios David Pritchard and co-executive produced by Avalon’s Dan Lubetkin. Seth Cohen and Jackie Phillips are the Executives in Charge of Production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
