ABC Family Orders Comedy 'Kevin From Work' to Series

As part of the network's comedy expansion, ABC Family has ordered its first single-camera comedy Kevin From Work to series. It was announced today by Karey Burke, Executive Vice President, Programming & Development. The series will begin production in June and will premiere later this summer.

"Single camera represents the evolution of our comedy brand," said Burke. "Kevin From Work is an endearingly awkward love story - this time from the guy's point of view."

Kevin From Work is a workplace comedy centered on Kevin (Noah Reid), a young man who declares his unrequited love for his co-worker Audrey (Paige Spara) in a letter, believing he'll never see her again after he accepts a job overseas. But when the opportunity falls through and Kevin is forced to return to his old job, how will he and Audrey continue to work together now that his feelings are no longer secret?

The cast also includes Matt Murray, Jordan Hinson and Punam Patel, with guest star Amy Sedaris.

Kevin From Work is written, created and executive produced by Barbie Adler. Aaron Kaplan of Kapital Entertainment and McG at Wonderland Sound & Vision will serve as executive producers. McG also directed the pilot and will direct several episodes of the first season.
