JFL NorthWest in association with SiriusXM Canada presents: CORPORATE LIVE!

The new, critically-lauded comedic television series, CORPORATE, proclaimed by Indie Wire as “the first great comedy of 2018,” will host a special event with the creators and cast, to discuss this new edgy AND VERY dark comedy.

CORPORATE takes a look at life as a Junior-Executive-in-Training at your average, soulless multi-national corporation. Matt and Jake are at the mercy of a tyrannical CEO Christian DeVille and his top lieutenants, sycophants John and Kate. As Matt and Jake navigate an ever-revolving series of disasters their only ally is Hampton DeVille Human Resources rep Grace, who is beleaguered by both her job and her exhausting relationship with the very needy Matt and Jake.

CORPORATE LIVE! reunites STARS AND CO-CREATORS MATT INGEBRETSON AND JAKE WEISMAN AND DIRECTOR PAT BISHOP FOR A 2-episode screening, including AN EXCLUSIVE OF THE SEASON FINALE (which airs March 14 on MUCH/CANADA AND COMEDY CENTRAL/USA), followed by a Q&A session.
