Brooklyn Nine-Nine (Peacock)
Synopsis: From Dan Goor and Mike Schur, producers of The Office and Parks and Recreation, comes the hilarious Golden Globe® Award-winning comedy, Brooklyn Nine-Nine. Jake Peralta (Andy Samberg, Saturday Night Live) is a Brooklyn detective with a gift for closing cases and little respect for authority. When no-nonsense commanding officer Raymond Holt (Andre Braugher, Homicide: Life on the Street) joins the 99th precinct with something to prove, the two go head to head.
American Auto (Peacock)
Synopsis: From the creator of Superstore comes a new workplace comedy that takes the wheels off the automobile industry. Set in Detroit, the corporate executives of Payne Motors are at a crossroads: adapt to the changing times or be sent to the junkyard. Shaking things up is the new CEO, whose leadership, experience and savvy is only slightly offset by her complete lack of knowledge about cars. Luckily, her team has some of the best minds in the business – when they aren’t fighting or trying to outwit each other. From the corporate office to the factory floor, the crew of Payne Motors is driving home the laughs.
Community (Netflix & Hulu)
Synopsis: From Dan Harmon (The Sarah Silverman Program) and Emmy Award-winning directors Joe and Anthony Russo (Arrested Development) comes Community, a smart comedy series about a band of misfits who attend Greendale Community College. At the center of the group is Jeff Winger (Joel McHale, The Soup), a fast-talkin’ lawyer whose degree has been revoked. With some help from his fellow classmates, Winger forms a study group who eventually learn more about themselves than their course work.
The Mindy Project (Netflix, Hulu & Prime Video)
Synopsis: The Mindy Project is a biting new single-camera comedy from Emmy Award-nominated writer/producer and New York Times best-selling author Mindy Kaling (“The Office”) that follows a woman who, despite having a successful career, is unlucky in love and desperately needs to get her personal life back on track before her friends and colleagues are forced to stage an intervention. Funny, impatient and politically incorrect, Mindy Lahiri (Kaling) can quote every romantic comedy starring Meg Ryan that exists. She loves the good ones and the bad ones, because the girl always gets the guy. Mindy is determined to be more punctual, spend less money, lose weight and read more books — all in pursuit of becoming a well-rounded perfect woman… who can meet and date the perfect guy.
The Office (Peacock)
Synopsis: Steve Carell (The 40-Year-Old Virgin, The Daily Show) stars in The Office, a fresh and funny mockumentary-style glimpse into the daily interactions of the eccentric workers at the Dunder Mifflin paper supply company. Based on the smash-hit British series of the same name and adapted for American Television by Greg Daniels (King of the Hill, The Simpsons), this fast-paced comedy parodies contemporary American water-cooler culture. Earnest but clueless regional manager Michael Scott (Carell) believes himself to be an exceptional boss and mentor, but actually receives more eye-rolls than respect from his oddball staff.
A.P. Bio (Peacock)
Synopsis: When disgraced Harvard philosophy scholar Jack Griffin (Glenn Howerton) loses out on his dream job, he is forced to return to Toledo, Ohio, and work as a high school Advanced Placement biology teacher at Whitlock High School. Jack refuses to teach any biology and instead uses his honor students to help him get revenge on his rival. Principal Durbin (Patton Oswalt) struggles to control the force of nature that is Jack Griffin.
Great News (Netflix)
Synopsis: Getting along with office colleagues can be rough, but working with your mom? That’s a whole different story, and it’s the headline for Katie Wendelson (Briga Heelan, “Ground Floor,” “Undateable Live”), a smart, ambitious news producer at “The Breakdown,” a national cable news show that shoots in Secaucus, NJ. Katie was raised by an overly-involved mom who always told her she was destined for greatness. But now at 30 and feeling stuck in her career, Katie is starting to have some doubts. Meanwhile, her mother, Carol (Andrea Martin, “SCTV,” “My Big Fat Greek Wedding,” “Hairspray Live!”), is also looking for a change. After 30 years of being a stay-at-home mom, Carol decides that it’s never too late to follow your dreams and lands an internship at her daughter’s news show. This is Katie’s worst nightmare, until she comes to realize that with her biggest cheerleader at her side, she and her mom both might just make it after all. It takes a village to deliver the news day in and day out, and “The Breakdown” team does it with their own special flair. Sitting in the co-anchor chair is Chuck Pierce (John Michael Higgins, “Pitch Perfect,” “Best in Show”), the blowhard, difficult-to-please news desk veteran. Once a well-respected network newsman, Chuck intimidates everyone on staff except for Carol, who uses the skills acquired in her 30 years of mothering to deal with him. Together, this odd duo forges an unlikely friendship. Alongside him is Portia (Nicole Richie, “Candidly Nicole,” “The Simple Life”), the young, very hip co-host who brings a different perspective to old-fashioned journalism. Sometimes a shrewd social media genius, other times a bit checked-out, Portia finds it hard to relate to Chuck. Leading the news team is Greg (Adam Campbell, “Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt,” “Mixology”), the dashing young executive producer of “The Breakdown.” Energetic and a little uptight, Greg is constantly putting out fires and managing the whims and tantrums of his colleagues. Rounding out the newsroom is Justin (Horatio Sanz, “Saturday Night Live,” “The Dictator”), the video editor who has spent maybe a little too much time in a dark room editing horrific news footage, and Beth (Tracey Wigfield), the creepy resident meteorologist who is far from your stereotypical weather girl.
Parks and Recreation (Peacock)
Synopsis: From the people who brought you The Office comes Parks and Recreation, the hilarious saga of government employees and local citizens turning a neighborhood hole in the ground into a new public park. Comedy superstar Amy Poehler (Saturday Night Live, Baby Mama) stars as Leslie Knope, an ambitious and hopeful small town government worker, whose dreams are way bigger than her political talents. Created by Primetime Emmy® Award winners Greg Daniels (The Office, King of the Hill, The Simpsons) and Michael Schur (The Office, SNL), and featuring a stellar ensemble cast, Parks and Recreation is a “genuinely funny comedy” (Daniel Carlson, Hollywood Reporter) about bureaucracy, hope and America at the dawn of the Obama age.
Kim’s Convenience (Netflix)
Synopsis: This multi-award-winning series features the lives of a Korean-Canadian family who run a convenience store in Toronto. The series is based on Kim’s Convenience by Ins Choi.
Synopsis: ABC’s Scrubs examines the lives of the staff at Sacred Heart. In this unpredictable hospital filled with over-the-top staffers and patients, doctors have learned to survive by relying on each other to face relationships, death, kids, interns, water balloons, and anything else life may throw at them. Around here, humor and tragedy collide as they continually learn that even when you figure out who you are, there’s still more life to navigate and it helps to have good people in your corner…even if they are a bit scattered themselves.
Synopsis: While chasing dreams of stardom, six Hollywood wannabe actors and writers make ends meet by working for a posh Los Angeles catering company, which tackles a different event — senior singles mixer, porn awards after party, a Super Sweet 16 bash — in each episode.
Abbott Elementary (Hulu & HBO Max)
Synopsis: In this workplace comedy, a group of dedicated, passionate teachers—and a slightly tone-deaf principal—are brought together in a Philadelphia public school where, despite the odds stacked against them, they are determined to help their students succeed in life. Though these incredible public servants may be outnumbered and underfunded, they love what they do — even if they don’t love the school district’s less-than-stellar attitude toward educating children. “Abbott Elementary” stars Quinta Brunson as Janine Teagues, Tyler James Williams as Gregory Eddie, Janelle James as Ava Coleman, Chris Perfetti as Jacob Hill, Lisa Ann Walter as Melissa Schemmenti and Sheryl Lee Ralph as Barbara Howard.
