What is Cubicles about?

Cubicles is a hilarious and poignant ‘slice-of-life’ comedy series created by Amit Golani and directed by Chaitanya Kumbhakonum.

The first season aired on The Viral Fever’s YouTube channel from later 2019 and became widely popular both domestically and internationally.

“This world is actually run by people sitting and working in their cubicles. This is a story of Piyush Prajapati, a 22 year old, fresh out of college and recruited like most of his batch-mates into an Indian IT company.” – Synopsis, via IMDB.

The show followed the highs and lows that Piyush experienced as a ‘first jobber’, trying to balance a commitment to his new role in a growing company with personal interests.

Cubicles will return in January 2022 for its second season, which will focus on Piyush as he tries to move up the corporate ladder.
