Working took a satirical (and sometimes over-the-top) look at office life within a big corporate company. The show starred Fred Savage as the naive Matt Peyser, whose ideals are constantly challenged by his boss, Tim Deale, played by Maurice Godin. Other characters included dim-witted Jimmy (Dana Gould), under-respected secretary Hal (Sarah Knowlton), overly perky Abby Cosgrove (Arden Myrin), acerbic Delaney (Steve Hytner), and no-nonsense manager Evelyn (Yvette Freeman).
Due to faltering ratings, the network attempted to breathe new life into the show during the second season with some cast changes. This included writing out the characters of Jimmy and Hal. They were replaced by Debi Mazar as the ruthless Liz and Rebecca McFarland as Val (As an in-joke, when Matt first sees Liz and Val he mistakenly calls them Jimmy and Hal). During the series run, Danica McKellar, formerly a co-star of Savage's of The Wonder Years, made two guest-appearances playing a woman Savage's character meets in a bar (who turns out to be related to his boss), and of whom he says "she reminds me of a girl I grew up with!"
Ratings for the series didn't improve and NBC canceled Working in January 1999. 35 of the 39 episodes produced were aired. Working was later reaired on the USA Network, including the never-before-seen episodes.
