Corporate (Comedy Central) -- Series Thread -- premieres 1/17/18





Misery loves a company and that company is Hampton DeVille. From Pat Bishop, Matt Ingebretson, and Jake Weisman comes a dark, edgy workplace comedy unlike any other. Comedy Central's newest scripted series, Corporate, takes you inside Hampton Deville - your average, soulless multi-national corporation - and follows the miserable lives of two downtrodden employees. Corporate premieres Wednesday, January 17 at 10:00 p.m. ET/PT with back-to-back episodes, as well as special bonus content. Beginning this Wednesday, TV subscribers can stream the first four episodes of the series exclusively on cc.com and the Comedy Central App or watch via their preferred TV provider's video-on-demand (VOD) service. Corporate stars series' creators/writers/executive producers Matt Ingebretson and Jake Weisman as two Junior Executives-in-Training at Hampton DeVille, a heartless, corporate hell-hole led by tyrannical CEO Christian DeVille (Lance Reddick) and his top lieutenants, sycophants John and Kate (Adam Lustick and Anne Dudek). As Matt and Jake navigate an ever-revolving series of disasters their only ally is Grace (Aparna Nancherla), a Hampton DeVille Human Resources rep who is beleaguered by both her job and her exhausting relationship with the very needy Matt and Jake. Guest stars across the first season include Anna Akana, Jon Daly, Philip Baker Hall, Natasha Lyonne, Aimee Mann, Rory Scovel, Baron Vaughn, Kate Walsh and Fred Willard.

The recent episode where they pitched selling makeup to men was one of the funnier episodes of TV I've seen in a while.

Love this show.

Especially for anyone who has slogged / is slogging through the corporate world, this is a really fun show.

I really love this show.
Its so dark and gloomy and the boss is essentially the devil.
Hampton DeVille (Devil)

I’ve been recording the season and binging it in two segments. Is that still binging?


Anyway it’s great.

The most popular tone among men in the office is one I like to call "Horny Toddler."
S02E03 "Natural Beauty" should win an Emmy for comedy.
