Set to join ABC during Midseason 2012 is Work It, a comedy about two men who dress up like women in order to get jobs as pharmaceutical sales reps. I’ve never actually seen Bosom Buddies, however this one sounds like it’s borrowing the concept, except instead of an apartment, these men are looking for jobs. Still, it could be funny because there are men dressing up like women and carrying purses.
The show actually looks pretty funny if you’re a fan of stories that focus on the shenanigans and smart life lessons that ensue when a person or people of one gender dress up like the other gender and see things from a new perspective. (I am. Ladybugs, Just One of the Guys... Tootsie - Classics.) Strangely enough, what’s selling me on this series is how it almost looks like sketch comedy. Based entirely on the two clips below, there’s something amusingly exaggerated about the comedy that has me wondering if the show will seem funny in a vintage sort of way or else just plain dated. Either way, men dressing up like women! Funny!
Below is ABC’s synopsis for the series and further down are a few clips from the premiere episode:
