*TV One’s Digital Media Group has launched its first web series, “The Cube Life,” based around scenarios that all coworkers experience in daily, close-quartered office life.

The scripted show centers on a cast of young black professionals looking to make the next big move in their careers at “An Entertainment Company,” the DC area’s top media company. Each of the employees is in search of a way to shine as he or she competes for the opportunity to move from his or her crowded cube to the big offices (doors are so necessary).

In the midst of their daily workload these strangers become more than just co-workers, but as they get closer personally, their private business becomes less and less that. That’s evident in the 10-minute pilot episode of “The Cube Life,” where one person’s speculation spawns an impromptu office-sponsored baby shower.

“In recent months, we have dramatically increased the traffic to tvoneonline.com and made it a “go to” destination for original video that supports and extends the content viewers can see on TV One,” said TV One Vice President of Digital Media Orlena Blanchard. “To build on the entertainment value of tvoneonline.com, we want to offer fresh content that stays true to the TV One brand, but also offers another reason for viewers to visit us online. We hope ‘The Cube Life’ will fill that bill, and strike a chord with those who have experienced the idiosyncracies of modern office life, where young professionals often forge the greatest friendships and the deepest rivalries, sometimes simultaneously.”

The executive producer and creator of “The Cube Life” is Ashley Grayson of TV One’s Digital Media Group. Click here and watch the full episode: (http://thecubelife.tvoneonline.com/category/webisodes)
