‘The Great Indoors’ Episode Guide (April 6): Jack Takes Brooke’s Fiancé and Roland Out on the Town

“Party Paul” (04/06/17) – When Jack takes Brooke’s fiancé, Paul (Andrew Leeds), and Roland out on the town to improve their lukewarm relationship, his plan backfires when Paul gets tipsy and goes missing, on “The Great Indoors,” Thursday, April 6 (8:31-9:01 PM, ET/PT) on the CBS Television Network.

Deborah Baker, Jr. recurs in this episode as Esther. Andrew Leeds (Paul) and Poochie Jackson (Valerie) guest star.

“Party Paul” was written by Damir Konjicija & Dario Konjicija. It was directed by Andy Ackerman.

The CBS comedy series “The Great Indoors” stars Joel McHale in a comedy about a renowned adventure reporter for an outdoor magazine who must adapt to the times when he becomes the desk-bound boss to a group of millennials in the digital department of the publication.

Jack has led a thrilling “outdoorsy” life exploring the edges of the earth while chronicling his adventures for Outdoor Limits. But his globe-trotting days end when the magazine’s charismatic founder and outdoor legend, Roland announces the publication’s move to web-only and assigns Jack to supervise their online team of “journalists.”

Jack’s eager 20-something colleagues include Clark, a tech nerd who knows everything about surviving on Mars and a zombie apocalypse; Emma, their social media expert who views Jack as the human version of dial-up; and Mason, a hipster-lumberjack who hasn’t spent any actual time outside.

Jack reports to Roland’s daughter, Brooke, an ex-flame who caters to the sensitive staffers by giving them all trophies just for working hard. Jack’s best friend, Eddie, runs the local dive bar that’s popular with the younger set and helps Jack “decode” his co-workers. Jack is baffled by the world of click-bait and listicles, but if he’s patient, he may be able to show these kids that the outside world is much more than something on a screen…if he doesn’t beat them with their selfie-sticks first.

“The Great Indoors” stars Joel McHale (Jack), Christopher Mintz-Plasse (Clark), Susannah Fielding (Brooke), Chris Williams (Eddie), Christine Ko (Emma), Shaun Brown (Mason), and Stephen Fry (Roland).

“The Great Indoors” is executive produced by Mike Gibbons, Chris Harris and Andy Ackerman. It’s produced by CBS Television Studios.
