Workshop is a comedic web series about the lives of struggling, young actors and actresses trying to make it in Hollywood. The series, written about actors by actors, contains many influences from the cast's personal lives. Nate Golon, executive producer and co-creator, said this about the show, “We basically expanded on the idea of all the things we had to deal with and then we made it goofier.”[6]

Season 2 premiered on Hulu on April 7, 2011, as six episodes of 22 minutes, making it the first ever independently produced half-hour comedy to air on Hulu.[7] Special guest stars in Season 2 include Don Stark from That '70s Show, Josh Meyers from That '70s Show and MADtv, and Marie Wilson from As the World Turns.[8]

The series has been noted for its clean dialogue and content, traits not always shared by web content. Golon stated this was to promote accessibility to a large audience.[9]
