A few days after it released Biatches, Comedy Central‘s CC:Studios outlet has a new series to present to its viewers. It has debuted the first three episodes of Pie Guys, a comedy co-directed by actor Ike Barinholtz and starring Jon Barinholtz, Rob Belushi and Mort Burke.
Pie Guys fits neatly into a recent Comedy Central trend where most shows about a group of male friends resemble Workaholics and most shows about a group of female friends resemble Broad City. The three main characters here all work together at a pizza parlor, and they resemble the three protagonists from Workaholics. The first episode involves a particular strong strain of marijuana and an irate customer who ordered his pizza over an hour ago.
Pie Guys is part of CC:Studios’ new lineup, which includes six projects helmed by comedians. I am personally excited about upcoming series from Dormtainment and Good Cop Great Cop, but Pie Guys seems like fairly middle-of-the-road fare. It won’t blow audiences away, but it will provide some easily-digestible laughs for its target audience.
