Worried about the government shutdown? Don’t be. MTV goes behind the scenes of Workaholics to talk about a very serious issue.
It became a credo during "The Future is Gnar". After Production Designer Gary Kordan read some early story documents for the season finale, he started sketching proposals for a war torn future; set in the TelAmeriCorp office.
Then it had to become a reality. How would we turn a normal office set into a cut scene from a video game? The answer turned out to be hard work, and Set Decorator Julie Drach lead her team to their best work of the season, if not the series.
The Art Department of Workaholics made the future gnar. I’d list them all by name here, but I wouldn’t want to leave anyone out, and a lot of their last names are hard to spell, but sincerely, Art-D, thank you. The episode would have looked like the TelAmeriCorp cleaning staff had gone on strike (episode idea?) without you.
Tomorrow on the Tumblr we’ll talk about some other Crew heroes, specifically how the Costume and Make Up Departments made you believe Alice could lose her head.
In the future, Workaholics posits there is still music.
Read on to see what influenced "The Future is Gnar".
"Alright baby we’re taking it to ‘em now! Work the leg, baby! Work the leg! Might as well quit Bulldog, you ain’t got no chance!"
Karl’s version of Jimmy Hart’s First Family would probably look something like this—
- King Kong Dersy
- Adam “The Snake Roberts” DeMamp
- "Hot Stuff" Uncle Blazer
- Sewer Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson
- "The Red Dynamo" That Lesbian Who Knocked out Ders
They’re coming to terrorize YOUR home town! Especially if your home town is Memphis. Lot of dirty wrestling trash in Memphis.
MTV News stopped by the Workaholics house during filming of an upcoming Season 3B episode to chat with Kyle, Blake, and Ders about what to expect out of the new season, who you might be seeing guest star, and what stars the guys are after to pop up in future seasons.
ANTHONY ANDERSON AIN’T SAFE NOWHERE!
Adam, Blake, and Ders want to thank all of the Workaholics fans who participated in yesterday’s huge Reddit AMA.
Over 10,000 questions were submitted, and the guys tried to get to as many as they could over the course of the session. Some of the best question/answer combos are posted above for those lost in the backlog.
The Workaholics Tumblr will still have answers for you on the occasional question and query, but to save time let’s go ahead and answer some of the recurring faves—
- When will Seasons 2 and 3A be put up on Netflix?
I don’t know yet. Soon as I have an idea, you’ll be the second person I tell (my friend Bert asked that he be the first to know).
- Will you marry me?
Me? Or the guys? Or one of each? Maybe start with me, then trade up for one of the guys? Who am I? Just the guy running the Tumblr, some call me Beef… but ya know, the guys are gonna say no, so let’s table the marriage thing for now and focus on…
- Can I get weird with you guys?
Oh, weren’t we doing that already:-) Well, in that case…
Let’s all #GetWeird tomorrow night with the Season 3B premiere of Workaholics, “Booger Nights”, at 10/9 CT, only on Comedy Central.
A lot of shows would use walkie talkies to communicate with actors shooting a scene from a high vantage point.
Or you could just yell up. That’s worked pretty well for us so far.
Are you ready to #GetWeird for years to come?
Because Workaholics is coming back for not just Season 4… it’s coming back for Season MORE! That’s Season 5, too.
Season’s 4 and 5 were just announced by Comedy Central Head of Production and Original Programming Kent Alterman at the TCA’s in Pasadena, California. That’s the epicenter of this #GetWeird earthquake, and the gnar aftershocks are sure to be felt from Rancho Cucamonga all the way to Poundtown.
We’ll see you there!
Don’t forget Workaholics Season 3B premieres on Wednesday, January 16th at 10/9 CT, only on Comedy Central!
Kyle Newacheck takes a break from writing and prepping Season 3B this summer to ride his hog around the parking lot.
He didn’t break any bones, but he sure broke a lot of hearts.
