Guest Stars Galore on TBS' Men at Work; Sitcom Stars on Talk Shows (Week of April 30, 2012)


Men at Work
Men at Work, the new TBS original comedy series from Sony Pictures Television, has begun production in Los Angeles. Created by Breckin Meyer, the sitcom stars Danny Masterson (That '70s Show), Michael Cassidy (The O.C.), Adam Busch (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), James Lesure (Las Vegas) and Meredith Hagner (Royal Pains). In addition to starting production, Men at Work has signed up its first guest stars: Stacy Keibler, J.K. Simmons and Kathy Najimy. Men at Work centers on four buddies who work together at a magazine. Masterson plays the recently dumped Milo, whose friends are determined to help him get back in the dating game. Lesure is Gibbs, a photographer and successful ladies man. Cassidy plays Tyler, a features writer who brings a dose of style and sophistication to the group. And Busch is Neal, a somewhat nebbish reporter and the only one in the group with a steady girlfriend (Hagner). Together, the four friends help each other navigate the treacherous waters of work, friendship and women.
As for the guest stars, Stacy Keibler will play Keri, a gorgeous girl who hooks up with Milo and Gibbs at a bar and offers them an interesting proposition. J.K. Simmons will play P.J. Jordan, the stern and demanding publisher of the magazine where the guys work. He also happens to be the father of Neal's girlfriend, Amy. And Kathy Najimy will play Sasha Ryan, a well-known sex blogger being interviewed by Tyler and photographed by Gibbs... and attracting the attention of both.
Men at Work is slated to air on TBS Thursdays at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), beginning with back-to-back episodes on May 24. The series will then air every Thursday in the 10 p.m. half-hour. Ten episodes have been ordered and will run through July 12, before being taken over by another original sitcom: Sullivan & Son. The season finale of Men will be back-to-back episodes as well on July 12.
