Bernie Rootle, Staff Accountant at AmericaBest Consulting, displays his "protest beard" as he complains about the firm's newly installed time and billing software -- and how it's left him with too much time on his hands. Time that is sending him a little off the deep end.
He's the center of the universe in "Bernie," an irreverent new comedy series about the world's oldest profession: Accounting.
Bernie's a lovable Luddite who's pushed wayyy out of his comfort zone when a new CEO takes over and disrupts all of his old-school routines. Forced to adapt, Bernie is slowly brought out of his safe little world into the larger, more elliptical orbit of a cast of eccentric office mates who encourage him to explore the outer reaches of workplace propriety:
Like eating lunch away from his desk. Occasionally wearing the odd-patterned necktie, And, when the spirit moves him, surrendering himself to the poetry of a soft rock anthem — and the healing power of interpretive dance.
Series launching 2014. Presented by BigTime Software.
