the process and the executives who are leading the charge,"added Sullivan. The debut of ".comEDY" comes on the heels of the successfullaunch of  TheFutonCritic.com's video section, a mix of red carpetand press line interviews as well as exclusive one-on-ones withassorted TV talent.

".comEDY" is set at E-sthetic, a fictional internet servicescompany in the Silicon Valley. Tyler Francavilla ("Roommates")stars as Davis, a Midwestern transplant who finds his first daythere anything but normal. He's called a heretic after his proudlyreligious cube-mate Christian (Amad Jackson, "Nick Swardson'sPretend Time") sees the action figures on display at his desk; hisco-workers Edgar (rising comedian Paul Reese) and Fareed (Amir Talai, "Harold & Kumar Escape from Guantanamo Bay") put him inthe middle of their escalating war over user permissions,company policies and who belongs on the Mount Rushmore of Science Fiction; and he's the latest target of Handsome Rob(Teddy Sears, "The Defenders"), the department's overlyaffectionate coordinator.Davis however finds kindred spirits in his boss, Spike (KevinWeisman, "Alias"), whose tattooed arms and relaxed naturebeguile a brilliant mind and manager; and his project manager, Jessica (Jessica Collins, "The Young and the Restless"), who provesto be an improbable mix of beauty, brains and science-fictionknowledge. Together they must brace for the upcoming stormthat is their IPO, an event that could make or break theircompany. That, and whether or not George Lucas will destroytheir childhood when "The Phantom Menace" opens in six months.".comEDY" is a Futon Media production with the company's BrianFord Sullivan and Matt Fix serving as executive producers.
