SHOWTIME RELEASES TRAILER AND OFFICIAL POSTER FOR 'WORK IN PROGRESS'

New Comedy Series Premieres Sunday, December 8 At 11 PM ET/PT


NEW YORK – October 31, 2019 – SHOWTIME has released the official poster and trailer for its new half-hour comedy series WORK IN PROGRESS, created by Chicago improv mainstays Abby McEnany and Tim Mason and co-written by Lilly Wachowski (The Matrix, Sense8), premiering on Sunday, December 8 at 11 p.m. ET/PT. A funny and uniquely human comedy, the series  features McEnany as a 45-year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke from Chicago whose misfortune and despair unexpectedly lead her to a vibrantly transformative relationship. Chicago-based performer Karin Anglin co-stars alongside Celeste Pechous, with Julia Sweeney (Saturday Night Live, Shrill) appearing in a crucial role as herself. Theo Germaine (The Politician) will also appear as a special guest star.

WORK IN PROGRESS is executive produced by McEnany, Mason and Wachowski, who also serve as co-showrunners. Lawrence Mattis, Ashley Berns and Josh Adler of Circle of Confusion also serve as executive producers, along with Tony Hernandez of JAX Media (DESUS & MERO) and Sweeney. Mason also serves as director this season, with Jacqueline “JJ” Ingram serving as producer. SHOWTIME acquired the pilot for the series after its premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival®, where it was an official selection of the Indie Episodic program.
