Corporate will receive its UK premiere on Comedy Central UK on Wednesday May 9th at 10pm with a double-bill, it has been announced.
Corporate is described as a dark, edgy look at life as a Junior-Executive-in-Training at Hampton DeVille – your average, soulless multi-national corporation. Matt and Jake are at the mercy of a tyrannical CEO Christian DeVille and his top lieutenants, sycophants John and Kate. As Matt and Jake navigate an ever-revolving series of disasters their only ally is Hampton DeVille Human Resources rep Grace, who is beleaguered by both her job and her exhausting relationship with the very needy Matt and Jake.
The half-hour dark comedy series was created by Jake Weisman, Matt Ingebretson and Pat Bishop and has already been renewed for a second season. Ingebretson and Weisman star as junior executives Matt and Jake. Rounding out the cast is Lance Reddick, Anne Dudek, Adam Lustick and Aparna Nancherla. In the season premiere, Matt and Jake are given their first bit of power as Junior Executives-in-Training when they are tasked with firing an employee who sent out an insensitive tweet from Hampton DeVille’s Twitter account. With the internet outraged by the tweet and calling for a boycott of the company’s latest product on the day of launch, the guys have to literally talk the fired employee off the ledge with the only thing a depressed corporate drone has to live for: a slice of birthday cake.
