IT’S NO APRIL FOOLS JOKE! CMT’S “WORKING CLASS” SEASON FINALE AIRS FRIDAY, APRIL 1
Starring Melissa Peterman and Ed Asner, Back-to-Back New Episodes Round Out the Finale Event
NASHVILLE – March 16, 2011 – CMT’s original series, WORKING CLASS, starring Melissa Peterman and Ed Asner, will kick-off its season one finale night Friday, April 1, with two new back-to-back episodes premiering at 8:00 p.m., ET/PT and 8:30 p.m., ET/PT.
In the first episode of the one-hour finale block, Carli brings an internet date (Guest star David Faustino, “Married with Children” and Not Another B Movie) to Rob’s housewarming party, hoping to prove that she is a good catch. In the episode immediately following, Carli accepts an “employee of the month” award from Parker Foods, setting the stage for a flashback to when she first interviewed for the job (Guest star Martin Mull, “Roseanne” and “’Til Death”).
WORKING CLASS stars Melissa Peterman (“Reba” and “The Singing Bee”) as single mom, Carli, who tries to give her kids a better life by moving them to an upscale suburb. She quickly finds that making the transition to “the good life” is harder than she thought. TV legend Ed Asner stars as the cranky, surly neighbor and co-worker, Hank; while TV newcomer and Broadway vet, Steve Kazee, plays Carli’s ladies-man brother. Patrick Fabian (“Big Love”) portrays Carli’s handsome boss. Lachlan Buchanan (“Hung”), Courtney Merritt (“The Forgotten”) and Cameron Castaneda (“Melrose Place) round out the cast as Carli’s three children.
