We’ve all been there, you spend a lot of hours working with someone and you start to develop a crush at the office. Some of us act on it and some of us keep it in the vault. The ABC Family sitcom “Kevin From Work” has turned this potentially awkward situation into a romantic comedy for your entertainment. The series is written, created and executive-produced by Barbie Adler (“How I Met Your Mother”). After 3 years of sharing the wall of a cubicle with his love-interest Audrey (Paige Spara), Kevin (Noah Reid) works up the courage to reveal his feelings in a letter on his last day at the office before he is scheduled to relocate for a new position abroad. What’s the harm? After all, he will never see her again right? Or will he?
The story takes a twist when his new job opportunity falls through and he is forced to go back to work alongside Audrey who is currently off the market. EncinoMom caught a sneak peek and gathered Intel from behind the scenes at the Q&A with members of the “Kevin From Work” cast. You’ve been warned, the tension in this series gets hilariously awkward. The chemistry that the actors have in real life translates on to the screen. The unique characters in this series were especially a favorite and the inappropriate best friend Brian (Matt Murray) who lacks a filter may just have stolen the show. Expect more inappropriate characters such as the boss Julia (Amy Sedaris), Kevin’s sister Roxie (Jordan Hinson), the office gossip Ricky (Jason Rogel) and Audrey’s roommate Patti (Punam Patel).
While you’re waiting for the big reveal, EncinoMom has compiled a short list of a few fun facts gathered from the Q&A:
- Actress Punam Patel ad-libbed the line “I hope I’m pregnant” in the series premiere
- Actress Paige Spara revealed that unlike the character Kevin, she has always gone for it when she has a crush
- Spara also revealed that she feels like Snow White because of the cartoons that are added to enhance Kevin’s fantasy of her
- Actor Matt Murray revealed that he can relate to this story from the days when used to work at Target where he developed a crush on his co-worker
- Actor Jason Rogel revealed that much like his character he also enjoys some good gossip
