Spike’s ‘Factory’ Hazard Zone

July 1, 2008 12:36 PM

Spike TV has launched its first scripted comedy, “Factory,” on Sundays at 10 p.m.

The show follows four beer-guzzling childhood friends who work together at a local factory. But it’s not drinking on the job that everyone should be worried about. No, the deadly foe is quite literally a necktie.

For the ladies looking for someone to relate to in this testosterone-heavy comedy, there are some female spouses, including a Ritalin-dispensing schoolteacher. What? It’s totally OK if you charge the kids $6 a pop.

Check out the clips below from the premiere episode, which may make some viewers ponder the question, “To tie or not to tie?”
