NEW YORK, December 21, 2012 – Prepare yourself to get weird as infamous coworkers Adam, Blake and Ders return to the office with ten all-new episodes!

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 from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. 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. Whether it’s Blake (Blake Anderson) dressed in a bear coat, Adam (Adam Devine) singing about Catherine Zeta Jones while high on mushrooms or The Ders (Anders Holm) celebrating his birthday with a drinking triathlon, the boys always seem to run into trouble wherever they go.
The “Workaholics” have a large social media presence and love to #GETWEIRD with fans on Twitter (@UncleBlazer, @ADAMDEVINE, @ders808, @kylenewacheck), as they live tweet during every new episode. The Facebook page has over 1.1 million fans and is updated daily throughout the season and the show’s official tumblr features exclusive animated gifs, photos, memes and videos. The "Workaholics" Web site features a wealth of video content, including the web series, “Workaholics: The Other Cubicle,” featuring your favorite cubicle neighbors “Montez,” “Waymond” and “Jet Set” as well as show clips, exclusive video and more. In addition, “Workaholics” fans following the show with the TV companion app, Zeebox, can use their mobile devices to access interactive features in real-time as the show airs, including bonus content and social updates from friends and fellow viewers.
