The workplace comedy Superstore features America Ferrera and Ben Feldman as employees at a megastore that houses its share of eccentric employees. Although part of comedy is rooted in over the top behavior, witty repartee, and slapstick, a healthy dose of reality is thrown in the mix.
“We didn’t set out to make a documentary (with Superstore),” said Ferrera. “And it turns out that our insane scenarios that we are using for comedy are not even strange enough for what a big-box store is like.”
Feldman is the atypical shopper who will actually go to a store and buy the exact thing he wanted. Ferrera’s shopping habits are much more universal, as venturing to a store without a few things in mind, along with the purchase of additional items, is simply the natural order of business!
