Thank you to everyone who jumped onto our "Workaholics Anonymous" Facebook fan page. It had a quiet launch last week, and we rose to over a hundred fans in just a few days. More on that below, but the page already promises to not only connect people to the film, but also offer a social area for workaholics to swap ideas and vent about their daily grind.
Within days, the page's "Wall" became an emotional support group, offering a place for fans to admit, "I am a workaholic." The discussion board has also seen a wide range of topics, such as tips and tricks, as well as the pros and cons of self-employment vs. finding a job.
"We're already surprised at how quickly the page has grown," said Producer Allison Freitas. "It's pretty clear that this page is bigger than the film itself, and we'd like to continue growing it as a place for real-life workaholics to connect and network."
In addition to updates about the film, the page is constantly sharing helpful links and articles, from getting the most out of weekends to ditching the Monday morning blues. Only a week since it's launch, and the fan page is already becoming a great resource for all the crazy, caffeine-driven workaholics out there.
Workaholics Anonymous is a quirky, light-hearted comedy about the trials and tribulations of self-employment. Dan Jette might spend his business day alone in his quiet home office, but in his mind, he is an over-worked, cubicle-bound employee in a busy office building. As he pushes through his 9-5 grind, he begins to wonder why he’s the only employee actually doing anything.
