"Work It" (ABC TV show) is a high-concept comedy that centers on two unrepentant guy's guys who, unable to find work, dress as women to get jobs as pharmaceutical reps. Not only do they pull it off, but they might just learn to be better men in the process. With unemployment an ongoing issue and women now outnumbering men in the workforce, the comedy series "Work It" follows two alpha males who realize the only way to beat the current "mancession" and land a job in pharmaceutical sales is to pass themselves off as women.

Combining all the best elements of the workplace comedy, the buddy comedy and the family comedy, "Work It" centers on Lee Standish (Ben Koldyke)—a quick-witted and likable family man who used to be a top car salesman until he got laid off—and Angel Ortiz (Amaury Nolasco)—a single, hot-headed ladies' man with no filter—who quickly learn there are fundamental differences in the worlds of men and women that go beyond teetering in high heels and tightening up with Spanx. Lee and Angel are determined to keep their ruse going for as long as they can—and keep their newly found jobs—in this smart, funny and relevant look at male and female relationships at work, at home and socially. Being a better man sometimes means having to be a better woman.

The "Work It" cast includes Ben Koldyke ("How I Met Your Mother") as Lee, Amaury Nolasco ("Prison Break") as Angel, Beth Lacke ("Happy Hour") as Connie, John Caparulo ("Chelsea Lately") as Brian, Rebecca Mader ("Lost") as Grace, Rochelle Aytes ("Detroit 1-8-7") as Vanessa, Kate Reinders ("Sherrie") as Kelly, Kirstin Eggers ("Aussie and Ted's Great Adventure") as Kristin and Kacie Lynch ("Barney and Friends") as Kat.

The "Work It" TV show was written by Andrew Reich & Ted Cohen ("Friends," "Rules of Engagement"). Reich and Cohen are the executive producers. Beth McCarthy Miller ("Saturday Night Live," "30 Rock") is the director. "Work It" is produced by Bonanza Productions, Inc. in association with Summer School Productions and Warner Bros. Television.

I think the Premiere was very funny. My husband and I haven't laughed so much from a TV show in a long time. The guys went to extreme to convince others that they are women which was just plain funny. Hope they keep this going.

Got Work It spoilers? What did you think of the last show?
