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… even if they don't know what day it is. Co-created by Mail Order Comedy's Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheckand 5th Year's Dominic Russo and Connor Pritchard, the series stars Anderson, Devine and Holm and is directed by Newacheck. Kevin Etten serves as the show runner.

The "Workaholics" Facebook page will be updated daily throughout the season and fans of the show who "like" the page by September 9 have a chance to win a shout-out from the guys in a season two episode.
