Comedy Central has decided to once again spread its Workaholics talent around. Two of the highly successful show’s writers Sean Clements and Dominic Dierkes (the latter of whom you may know from Derrick Comedy, the troupe in which Donald Glover got his start) have inked a deal to co-star in a pilot called Checked Out. The two will play characters “trying to manage a youth hostel without fully understanding youth, managing, hostels, or how people normally behave,” according to Deadline. Workaholics co-executive producer Craig DiGregorio will write the pilot. In April, Comedy Central announced that Adam Devine, one of the three main stars of Workaholics, would host his own stand-up comedy show on the network. Clements and Dierkes have been performing live sketch comedy together for years.
