He must then set off to rescue his one true love from an office building full of psychotic co-workers armed with tomorrow's deadliest tech.
With a script by Ian Shorr and Peter Gamble Robinson, Office Uprising was produced by Giulia Prenna, Jim Steele, Sean Lydiard and Will Clevinger. Thwaites, Stephanie Pinola and Chris Conover executive produced and Dan Spilo co-executive produced.
