TBS has renewed its popular new sitcom Men at Work for a second season. Currently airing Thursdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), the comedy ranks as one of basic cable's Top 5 new series with adults 18-49 for the quarter. TBS has ordered 10 episodes for the second season, which is slated to launch in 2013.

"Men at Work is a strong addition to the TBS lineup and has worked extremely well paired with The Big Bang Theory," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "We're very excited to welcome the outstanding cast and production team of Men at Work back for another season."

Created by Breckin Meyer(Road Trip, TNT's Franklin & Bash), Men at Work centers on four buddies who work together at a magazine.

James Lesure (Las Vegas) is Gibbs, a photographer and successful ladies man. Michael Cassidy (The O.C) plays Tyler, a features writer who brings a dose of style and sophistication to the group. And Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer) is Neal, a somewhat nerdy ad salesman and the only one in the group with a steady girlfriend (Meredith Hagner - Royal Pains).

Men at Work comes to TBS from Sony Pictures Television and Fanfare. The multi-camera comedy is executive-produced by Breckin Meyer, along with Fanfare's Jamie Tarses and Julia Franz.
