LOS ANGELES (October 7, 2014) – Writer/Producer/Actress CHRISSY SWINKO throws proper office procedure out the window in the new workplace dramedy web series, CORPORATE.
Swinko delivers big laughs as Alice, the selfish and conniving Human Resources Representative charged with the task of conducting the company’s exit interviews. Breaking all the proper office conduct rules, from drinking on the job to improper sexual advances with her ‘ex’, Alice quickly learns how to use her HR status to her advantage.
Calling upon her real-life experience, the series uses several bits of truth from her days of working in a Chicago office. Swinko adds, “Jeans Day is a real thing. We could pay $5 to be allowed to wear jeans. It only happened once in a while. So it was hilarious to me as a writer, but also I was always really excited that I could wear jeans.”
Swinko brought in fellow actor Darrin Yalacki, who contributed his 10-plus years of experience in Human Resources, to star in and co-executive produce the project; and Anne Brashier to direct the 9-episode season. Rounding out the cast of co-workers is: Parvesh Cheena (Outsourced, Arrested Development), Jonathan Chase (Love Thy Neighbor, A Madea Christmas), Nancy Friedrich (A to Z), Adalgiza Chermont, Sheila Grenham, Caitlin Muelder, Ryan Gowland and Kale Hills.
Originally from Litchfield, OH (a suburb of Cleveland), Swinko graduated from Denison University before making her way to Chicago. After honing her improv and sketch comedy skills, this funny lady headed to Hollywood. Swinko has appeared on some of the most respected stages in comedy, including Jimmy Kimmel Live, the Comedy Central Stage, UCB, iO West, iO Chicago, The Second City, and many more. In 2013, she took her wildly successful solo show, "#UGH: All of My Disappointments Located Conveniently in One Show" to UCB Spank, the Austin Out Of Bounds Comedy Festival and the LA Scripted Comedy Festival.
