Last Friday at the New York Television Festival My Damn Channel Co-Founder and CEO Rob Barnett let the cat out of the bag: Streamy Award nominated comedy web series The Temp Life is coming to his network. The series, which takes a comedic look at the highs and lows of hourly workers, premieres its fifth season on December 6th.
CJP Digital Media announced today that Illeana Douglas (Entourage, Easy to Assemble), Craig Bierko (Damages, Cinderella Man) and Milo Ventimiglia (Heroes, Gilmore Girls) will guest star on the series, which has been backed by Spherion Staffing Services since 2006.
The Temp Life creator-producer and star Wilson Cleveland enlisted The Legend of Neil’s Tony Janning and Gabe Uhr to write the new season, which will also feature new and returning guest stars Janning, Sandeep Parikh (The Legend of Neil, The Guild), Taryn Southern (Private High Musical, Sorority Forever), Mark Gantt (The Bannen Way), Jessica Rose (lonelygirl 15, Greek), and Rachael Hip-Flores (Anyone But Me).
The Temp Life will be distributed on Spherion.com and across all SFN Group brand web sites. My Damn Channel will begin running last year’s season next week, and will distribute Season 5 across its YouTube, DailyMotion, and Boxee channels. Syndication partner Blip.tv will continue to distribute to Roku set top boxes and internet-enabled televisions, and BOWTV will make The Temp Life available on-demand across its hotel room network.
