ABC FAMILY TO GIVE VIEWERS A FIRST LOOK AT “KEVIN FROM WORK” ON FACEBOOK
Premiere Episode Will Be Available to Stream Exclusively Starting Today
Burbank, CA (July 29, 2015) – As part of the network’s ongoing summer sampling campaign for its new original series, ABC Family will showcase the network’s newest original comedy, “Kevin From Work,” prior to its on-air premiere on Facebook.
Starting today, July 29th, fans can watch the entire first episode of “Kevin From Work” exclusively on Facebook at https://www.facebook.com/KevinFromWorkTV. The show will premiere on ABC Family on Wednesday, August 12th at 8:00 PM ET/PT with two back-to-back episodes.
In “Pilot,” airing at 8:00 PM ET/PT, after secretly pining after her for years, Kevin declares his love for his coworker Audrey in a letter, believing he’ll never see her again after he accepts a job overseas. But Kevin is horrified when that job falls through, and tries to get the letter back before Audrey can see it. Meanwhile, Kevin’s irresponsible sister Roxie arrives in town and ends up as Kevin’s roommate.
The summer sampling strategy launched earlier this summer with “Stitchers” and “Becoming Us” and is a multi-tiered approach that coincides with the series premiere dates. The sampling tactics continue with exclusive digital premieres on Facebook (“Kevin From Work”) and Tumblr (“Job or No Job,” “Next Step Realty,” “Monica The Medium” and “Startup U”), screening events with magazines and websites – such as Hearst Magazines’ TrendingNY, OK! Magazine, and digital media company Refinery29; free preview of full episodes on Facebook, Tumblr, Twitter, YouTube, iTunes, Amazon video and Google Play; previews of full episodes on the WATCH ABC Family app, MVPDs and set-top box VODs; as well as on a special ABC Family website www.ABCFbestsummertvever.com where fans can not only watch the premiere episodes but also post reviews and share across their social platforms.
“Kevin from Work” is written, created and executive-produced by Barbara Adler (“How I Met Your Mother,” “My Name Is Earl,” and “Arrested Development”). Aaron Kaplan at Kapital Entertainment (“Chasing Life,” ”The Mysteries of Laura,” “The Neighbors” and “Terra Nova”) and McG and Mary Viola at Wonderland Sound & Vision (“Charlie’s Angels,” “The O.C.,” “Supernatural,” “Chuck,” and “Nikita”) serve as Executive Producers. The series stars Noah Reid (“Backpackers“) as Kevin, Paige Spara as Audrey, Matt Murray (“Rookie Blue”) as Brian, Jordan Hinson (“Eureka”) as Roxie, Punam Patel as Patti, with recurring guest star Amy Sedaris (“Strangers with Candy”) as Julia.
