Even Comedy Central’s big-name scripted series, like South Park, earn relatively low Nielsen ratings, but the basic cable network keeps putting out content, probably because its audience skews younger, and a lot of them watch On-Demand or stream their programming. The Corporate TV show, created by Pat Bishop with stars Matt Ingebretson and Jake Weisman, did well enough to return for a second season. Will this be the end, or will it be with us for years to come? Will Corporate be cancelled or renewed for season three? Stay tuned. *Status update below.
A Comedy Central sitcom, Corporate also stars Lance Reddick, Anne Dudek, Adam Lustick, and Aparna Nancherla, with Kyra Sedgwick, Elizabeth Perkins, Kristen Schaal, Sasheer Zamata, Baron Vaughn, and Andy Richter guest-starring in season two. The comedy explores life as a Junior-Executive-in-Training. At the profitable multi-national corporation, Hampton DeVille, Matt and Jake (Ingebretson and Weisman) are just two more cogs in the machine. Confrontational criticism rules the day, under the iron fist of CEO Christian DeVille (Reddick), and his sycophantic underlings John (Lustick) and Kate (Dudek).
