While ABC has filled its new schedule some pretty amazing new programs, the one series that is having many critics scratching their heads is WORK IT – a cross-dressing comedy about two men, who dress like women, to get a job in the working woman’s world.
At today’s ABC Television Critics Association session, ABC Entertainment President Paul Lee defended his decision for picking up the series.
“I’m a Brit – I have to do a cross-dressing show,” says Lee. “And I grew up with Monty Python.”
Of course, Lee admits he didn’t expect the new show would be embraced by the TCA critics and was prepared for the backlash.
“We didn’t think this room would like it, but we get some pleasure in that,” Lee says with a smile. “You know, when you pick up pilots, there are many reasons you’re going to pick something up. Who is the showrunner? What is the show going to be? And sometimes you pick up a pilot because it makes you cackle with laughter. There’s no excuses for it, [WORK IT] makes me cackle with laughter.”
