Tonight a new comedy premiered on ABC. It involves two alums of great shows, such as Benjamin Koldyke from How I Met Your Mother and Amaury Molasco from Prison Break, and includes Lst alum Rebecca Mader among others.
What is Work It About? Plot Synopsis
Centers on two unemployed car salesmen who realize that they are living in a woman’s world, so they decide that to find work again, they must dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. By doing so, it makes them better men, husbands and fathers, but also makes them appreciate the sanctuary of their nights at the bar where they can be themselves.
The almost-broke and unemployed Lee finds out that Coreco Pharmaceuticals is looking to hire sales reps — female sales reps. He takes a chance and goes into the interview dressed in heels, a skirt and makeup. The transformed Lee gets hired — as a woman. Lee wants to stay true to his agreement with Angel that, if one of them is working, then the other will be too, so he tells Angel what he has to do if he wants a job at Coreco. Angel, who is miserable working at a fast-food dump, is desperate to make a change; he decides to swallow his pride and go for it. Unfortunately he tanks his interview, but when he fixes the boss’s car, he too is hired – also as a woman.
There was a lot of controversy around this show, but it all ends up being a silly sitcom, that probably won´t last much, but it´s actually harmless. And probably follow the footsteps of Man Up, How to be a Gentleman and many more casualties of lately.
