"Workaholics" Episodes Will Be Available Day-After-Air In HD On iTunes, xBox/Zune, Playstation And Amazon

NEW YORK, March 14, 2011 -- Just because you've left college doesn't mean you can't take the party with you. For three post-grad pals trying to make their way in the real world, the revelry continues all day and night, whether they're in their office cubicles grinding out a paycheck or back at their house partying it all away! Blake Anderson, Adam Devine and Anders Holm star in "Workaholics," COMEDY CENTRAL's newest half-hour scripted series, premiering on Wednesday, April 6 at 10:30 p.m.

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´┐Żeven if they don't know what day it 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 and Chris Koch ("Modern Family"). Kevin Etten serves as the show runner.

In the premiere episode, Adam, Blake and Anders are confronted with the ultimate test of their delicate work-life balance when they arrive at the office after a weekend of partying to learn that they and their colleagues will be subject to a random drug test being given that afternoon. Knowing they have absolutely no chance to pass the test, and faced with being fired and losing their only source of income, the guys are forced to use their cunning and creativity to come up with some last-ditch ideas to beat the test and save their jobs.

Launching in March, the "Workaholics" Web site will feature a wealth of video content including, show clips, exclusive video, cast interviews and behind-the-scenes action. The guys will also be active on Twitter (Anders, Blake, Adam, Kyle) and Facebook where fans will be able to communicate with them throughout the season. In addition, mobile will feature a WAP site loaded with video content and periodic SMS challenges.

The "Workaholics" episodes will be available in HD the day-after-air on iTunes, Xbox/Zune, Playstation and Amazon. The first episode of the season will launch on these platforms on Thursday, April 7.

"Workaholics" is executive produced by Mail Order Comedy, Etten, 5th Year's Russo and Pritchard, Avalon Television's Richard Allen-Turner, David Martin and Jon Thoday as well as Gigapix Studios David Pritchard. Seth Cohen is the executive in charge of production for COMEDY CENTRAL.
