“Superstore”
Season Premiere Monday, January 4 at 8 PM ET/PT on NBC
 
         In the January 4 season premiere, "Mannequin," it’s Jonas not so lucky day at Cloud 9. Johnny Pemberton guest stars. When Jonah's (Ben Feldman) coworkers discover a mannequin that looks exactly like him, it quickly becomes everyone's newest obsession. While doing his best to prove to Amy (America Ferrera) and everyone else that the teasing doesn't bother him, Jonah ends up doing the complete opposite. Elsewhere Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom) is thinking of putting her baby up for adoption, pitting Glenn (Mark McKinney) and Dina (Lauren Ash) against one another in a fight over who would make the better parent. Nico Santos and Colton Dunn also star.

 

          America Ferrera (“Ugly Betty”) and Ben Feldman (“Mad Men,” “A to Z”) star in the hilarious workplace comedy “Superstore” (from the producer of “The Office”) about a unique family of employees at a super-sized megastore. “Superstore” centers around Amy (Ferrera), the store’s most stalwart employee as well as the glue holding the place together, and newly hired Jonah (Feldman), a naive dreamer determined to prove work doesn’t have to be boring. Their fellow associates include the sardonic Garrett (Colton Dunn, “Key and Peele”) the ambitious Mateo (Nico Santos, “Mulaney”) and the sweet pregnant teenager, Cheyenne (Nichole Bloom, “Shameless”). Overseeing them all are Glenn (Mark McKinney, “Kids in the Hall”) the store’s affable, clueless store manager, and Dina (Lauren Ash, “Super Fun Night”), the aggressive assistant manager who lives by a very specific code — namely the store’s employee handbook.  
 
         From the bright-eyed newbies and the seen-it-all veterans to the clueless summer hires and the in-it-for-life managers, together they hilariously tackle the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions.
