“Workaholics” is a single-camera comedy featuring three friends who work together from 9 to 5, live together from 5 to 9 and party together 24/7. 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.
The “Workaholics” Web site features a wealth of video content including show clips, exclusive video, cast interviews and behind-the-scenes action. The guys are active on Twitter (@UncleBlazer, @ADAMDEVINE, @ders808, @kylenewacheck), live tweeting each week on show nights. The “Workaholics” Facebook page is updated daily throughout the season and fans can follow the show’s tumblr at workaholics.tumblr.com, featuring exclusive photos, videos and updates. In addition, the mobile site will be loaded with video content and periodic SMS challenges.
“Workaholics” will be available in SD and HD the day after air on iTunes, Xbox Video, Amazon Instant Video, Sony Entertainment Network, Vudu and Samsung Media Hub.
