Taking place at the offices of Kathletics, an up-and-coming women’s wear company, the web series shifts between the points of view of four bosses and their four assistants as they comically navigate working in an office and the employer-employee dynamic.
The first episode, which premiered March 13, starts out when Leslie Mulligan-Ross, a Kathletics executive and new lesbian mom, returns to work after her maternity leave. Leslie finds herself struggling to maintain her cutthroat reputation among her colleagues, who now expect her to show a softer, more maternal side.
Secs & EXECS features a large and diverse cast. In addition to Olivia d’Abo (The Wonder Years), who plays Leslie, the show stars lesbian comedian Sandra Bernhard (Roseanne) who plays Kath, the owner of her namesake company. Other cast members include Mindy Sterling (Austin Powers), Natalie Dreyfuss (Rita Rocks), Bayne Gibby (Enlightened), Parvesh Cheena (Crazy Ex-Girlfriend), Miguel Pinzon (Mystery Girls), Travina Springer (Valentine’s Day), Matthew Smith (America’s Next Top Model), and Daniela Bobadilla (Anger Management).
Secs & EXECS was created and written by famous writing/production duo James Berg and Stan Zimmerman, known for writing for The Golden Girls, Roseanne, and Gilmore Girls. Berg and Zimmerman aren’t new to Tello; their Tello original series Skirtchasers debuted last year.
