Work in Progress

Dir. Tim Mason, USA, 2019

WORK IN PROGRESS, a new half-hour comedy series created by Chicago improv mainstays Abby McEnany and Tim Mason and co-written by Lilly Wachowski (THE MATRIX, SENSE8), is a funny and uniquely human comedy. WORK IN PROGRESS 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) appearing in a crucial role as herself and serving as executive producer. Theo Germaine (THE POLITICIAN) will also appear as a 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). Mason also serves as director of this season, which will premiere Sunday, December 8 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on SHOWTIME.

Writers: Abby McEnany, Tim Mason
Cast: Abby McEnany, Karin Anglin, Celeste Pechous, Julia Sweeney
