Hold On, Work It Is A Real Show? Like, For Real?

|

Things that Real Men do: Grind on ladies and eat big sandwiches.

Things that Real Women do: Fawn over wedding rings and only eat salads!

This is, according to ABC, Gender Rules In 2011 101, if their new sitcom, Work It, has anything to say about it. It’s a terrible Bosom Buddies update/ripoff, in which two guys desperate to enter the female-dominated workforce dress up as women to work as …pharmaceutical reps? Huh?

It gets better (!). No, really. Says ABC:

This high-concept comedy centers on two unrepentant guy’s guys who, unable to find work, dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. Not only do they pull it off, but they might just learn to be better men in the process.

Huh? “High concept?” Like Twin Peaks-high concept? Is Work It basically Battlestar Galactica with chunky necklaces instead of Cylons? Holy moly, ABC. If you’re going to put a terrible show on the air, the least you could do is not try to make two bumbling fools dressed up like women for cheap laughs a “high concept” in which the guys become moral compasses. It’s not the iconic Louie poker scene, for heavens sake, it’s Bosom Buddies, but terrible and probably offensive.

P.S. Thanks for putting a line of dialogue from the pilot on your web site???
