HR Strange But True!
March 17, 2011

Your SBT editors have seen some workers’ compensation cases that were pretty humorous. Well, some television producers think that workers’ comp is downright funny—they’re basing a new sitcom on it!

According the Hollywood Reporter, a new indie sitcom, appropriately titled “Workers’ Comp,” will begin filming its pilot episode in Florida in April. The premise revolves around a family insurance business and the wacky, “often extremely bizarre,” claims of a weekly parade of guest stars.

Heading the WC agency is the beautiful blonde TV veteran—and Screen Actors Guild Board Member—Morgan Fairchild. Helping her compensate for the workers’ comp craziness is Robert Carradine of “Revenge of the Nerds” fame.

Ironically, one of the producers is Mark Wooster, former senior vice president of legal affairs at Universal Studios. It’s probably good to have a lawyer involved. However, the really “strange” in this Strange but True is that the script was written by two 19 year old writers. Didn’t know that WC was a hot topic with teenagers.
