NBC’s comedy series Superstore returns for its fifth season on Thursday, Sept. 26. I had the pleasure of getting to interview Superstore actress Lauren Ash when she appeared at Austin TV Festival back in June.
An oddball family of employees at supersized megastore Cloud 9 tackles the day-to-day grind of rabid bargain hunters, riot-causing sales and nap-worthy training sessions. Stalwart employee Amy is just trying to hold it all together despite the best efforts of her daftly clueless manager Glen and his iron-fisted assistant Dina. Rounding out the crew is new hire Jonah, a dreamy dreamer, sardonic Garrett, ambitious Mateo and sweet young mother-to-be Cheyenne.
The comedy stars America Ferrera, Ben Feldman, Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Mark McKinney, and Nichole Bloom. The award-winning primetime series centers on the lives of employees at fictional big-box store Cloud 9.
