This hour-long comedy/drama was based on Douglas Coupland’s successful novel of the same name. It was the story of Ethan Jarlewski, computer expert and technical wiz kid, and his four co-workers. But in an effort to keep themselves motivated and engaged in their dull work environment, they got involved with some bizarre characters and adventures that were mostly illegal. Coupland and Michael McLennon, who was the principal writer for Queer As Folk and Godiva’s, two contemporary dramas that were critically acclaimed, adapted the dramas that were critically acclaimed, adapted the series.
