BROOKLYN, NY—As they donned jumpsuits and prepared to meet their employer’s relentless performance quotas, the cast members of Emmy-winning TV show The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel reportedly clocked in this morning to begin their mandatory 12-hour Black Friday shift at a local Amazon warehouse. “Listen, none of us like having to come in the day after Thanksgiving, but if you want to work for Amazon, those are the rules,” said series star Rachel Brosnahan, who signed in with show creator and temporary floor foreman Amy Sherman-Palladino before firing up one of the many forklifts the cast and crew of Amazon’s flagship comedy would be using to meet consumers’ holiday demands. “Don’t get me wrong, I like making some extra cash, but they do that thing where they say overtime is optional, and then if you don’t volunteer for it, they cut your screen time next season. It can be pretty tough. Last year, [series co-star] Tony [Shalhoub] threw his back out, and the rest of us had to pick up the slack or the whole team would have had its pay docked.” At press time, sources confirmed John Krasinski had been written up for failing to scan 300 warehouse items per hour, causing Amazon to fire him from his starring role in Jack Ryan.
