Chicago Made Showtime Series WORK IN PROGRESS Season Two Premiere This Sunday
Your plans for Sunday night are set. Created and filmed in its hometown of Chicago, WORK IN PROGRESS is back and Season Two is ready to roll on your small screen this Sunday at 10 pm Central.
This funny and uniquely human comedy comes to you from an artistic ensemble led by Chicago improv mainstays Abby McEnany and Tim Mason. Based on McEnany’s own life, the second season of WORK IN PROGRESS picks back up with McEnany’s character Abby in the wake of her breakup (and almost out of almonds). A 46-year-old self-identified fat, queer dyke, Abby begrudgingly accepts that she’s too busy to kill herself. In fact, she’s just starting to get her head above water… when a global pandemic converges with a family emergency and forces her into uncharted territory.
Here’s your first look at this Sunday’s Season Two Premiere:
Returning this season are actors Celeste Pechous, Armand Fields, Karin Anglin, Bruce Jarchow, Theo Germaine, and Saturday Night Live legend Julia Sweeney. McEnany serves as co-creator as well as co-writer with showrunner and director Lilly Wachowski.
Supervising Producer for the series is Chicago’s Jacqueline “JJ” Ingram. Executive Producers include McEnany and Wachowski, plus Lawrence Mattis, Josh Adler, Tony Hernandez, and the aforementioned Julia Sweeney.
Watch the Season 2 premiere on Sunday, August 22 at 11/10c on SHOWTIME.
