Ben Stiller’s last trip to the big screen was for his self-directed drama The Secret Life of Walter Mitty, and his next trip to the small screen will be on a show that is like one big Walter Mitty daydream, assuming Mitty likes to “schmoke a bewl” every now and then.
Here are five series that never got the Primetime Emmy attention they deserve, and probably never will. This obviously isn’t an exhaustive list, and doesn’t reflect the entire TV landscape, but these are series that have been on for multiple years that mostly retained the same level of quality and enjoyment.
Did you know Adam DeVine can sing? Well, if you've seen Pitch Perfect, you do, but fans of Workaholics may not have been aware, which might have been why Conan O'Brien decided to bring the subject up during his interview with the cast this week in anticipation of the series' Season 4 premiere.
In the few years I've covered Comic Con, I don't think I've ever seen a panel as raucous and funny as the Workaholics panel. This year marks the second appearance for the Comedy Central hit series at SDCC and, after easily filling a smaller room last year, Adam Devine, Blake Anderson, Anders Holm and and Kyle Newacheck were bumped to the Indigo Ballroom. And they had no trouble packing the house or bringing it down.
Coming off a supersized season, Comedy Central recently released Workaholics: Season 3 on to Blu-ray and DVD. The 2-disc Blu-ray set comes jam-packed with twenty Season 1 episodes, as well as a ton of bonus features, including the aptly titled “Drunkmentary” in place of the audio commentary. If you are a fan of the series or have always wanted to be invested, we’re giving away one free Blu-ray copy of Workaholics: Season 3, with thanks to Comedy Central.
Comedy Central has mapped out their schedule for the earlier part of 2013, scheduling the returns of beloved series Tosh.0 and Workaholics, and laying out the premiere dates for some new specials and shows, including The Jeselnik Offensive and Nick Kroll's new sketch comedy series Kroll Show.
Arrested Development might have struggled in the ratings but the series never lacked for guest stars and great ones at that. From Academy Award winners like Liza Minneli and Charlize Theron to fan favorites like Charles in Charge and Apollo Creed as, well, himself, Carl Weathers. And it seems like the revival of AD on Netflix has got itself a stew going with this season's guests.
If you’re a fan of Comedy Central’s Workaholics, there’s cause to rejoice (or smile lazily if rejoicing requires too much effort). Comedy Central has given the series a second-season order. This news comes as Season 1 continues to air new episodes (including one set to air tonight at 10:30 p.m.).
Set to debut in April on Comedy Central is Workaholics, a comedy series about three guys who, from the look of this trailer, are more dedicated to partying than they are to their jobs. Starring Blake Anderson, Adam Devine and Anders Holm, the show follows three post-grads as they cling to their college lifestyle while attempting to navigate through the real world.
