NEW YORK, May 5 (UPI) -- Comedy Central said it has renewed its U.S. series "Workaholics" for a second season.

The announcement was made Wednesday by Kent Alterman, the cable network's head of original programming and production.

Blake Anderson, Adam Devine, Anders Holm and Kyle Newacheck of the Internet sketch group Mail Order Comedy are to start production soon on 10 new episodes of the series, Comedy Central said.

"It's not only gratifying to know the audience for 'Workaholics' has grown week-by-week, but also rewarding to see how the show is changing the way people live and work," Alterman said in a statement. "Pretty soon, our national productivity will be so low, we will all have more leisure time."

"Workaholics" is a single-camera comedy featuring three friends who work together as telemarketers from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and live together from 5 p.m. to 9 a.m., a synopsis of the show said.
