“Superstore” 
Season Premiere Thursday, October 4 at 8 PM ET/PT on NBC
 
          On the season opening episode, “Back to School,” on their first day back from suspension, Amy (America Ferrera) and Jonah (Ben Feldman) steel themselves for a barrage of jokes and snide comments about their sex video, while Jeff (guest star Michael Bunin) goes to extreme lengths to win back Mateo (Nico Santos).
 
         America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty") and Ben Feldman (“Mad Men,” “A to Z”) star on the hilarious workplace comedy “Superstore,” about a unique family of employees at a supersized megastore. “Superstore” centers around Amy (Ferrera), the store’s most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together, and Jonah (Feldman), a dreamer determined to prove work doesn't have to be boring. Their fellow associates include the sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn, “Key & Peele”), sweet teenager Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom, “Shameless”), and the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos, “Crazy Rich Asians”), who has recently learned he is undocumented. Overseeing the store is Glenn (Mark McKinney, “The Kids in the Hall”), the store’s affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash, “Super Fun Night”), the aggressive assistant manager who enforces Cloud 9 policy with an iron fist.

 

         From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless seasonal hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions. “Superstore” was created by Justin Spitzer (“The Office”), who serves as an executive producer with director Ruben Fleischer (“Gangster Squad”), David Bernad (“Enlightened”), Gabe Miller & Jonathan Green (“The Office”) and Jackie Clarke (“Marry Me”).
