Philosophising about the 'S'-word: Watch… and learn


the-series-philosopher-SuperstoreSuperstore is an American single-camera sitcom television series that premiered on NBC on November 30, 2015. The series was created by Justin Spitzer, who also serves as an executive producer. Starring America Ferrera (who also serves as a producer) and Ben Feldman, Superstore follows a group of employees working at a fictional big-box store called “Cloud 9” set in St. Louis, Missouri. The ensemble and supporting cast features Lauren Ash, Colton Dunn, Nico Santos, Nichole Bloom and Mark McKinney.


  • America Ferrera (The Good Wife, Ugly Betty) as Amy Dubanowski, a Cloud 9 employee of ten years who worked as an associate, then floor supervisor, then assistant manager, and finally store manager before being fired in the season one finale. She married and had a daughter, Emma, with her high school sweetheart at age 19.
  • Ben Feldman (A to Z, Mad Men, Living with Fran) as Jonah, Cloud 9’s newest associate. Jonah makes a terrible impression on his first day and immediately clashes with Amy, but their relationship has since improved somewhat.
  • Lauren Ash (Another Period) as Dina, Cloud 9’s assistant store manager, who is extremely connected to her pet birds, but out of touch with other people. Her by-the-book management style often clashes with employees, and even her boss Glenn when he espouses his religious beliefs in the workplace.
  • Colton Dunn (Parks and Recreation) as Garrett, a Cloud 9 associate who is paralyzed from the waist down. He is often heard making announcements over the store PA system. He enjoys pulling pranks on his fellow coworkers and even customers, usually out of boredom.
  • Nico Santos (Go-Go Boy Interrupted) as Mateo Fernando Aquino Liwanag, a Cloud 9 associate. He is an ambitious new hire who wants to climb the ladder at Cloud 9 as quickly as possible. He immediately begins a rivalry with fellow new hire Jonah by pointing out his mistakes. He came out as gay to Glenn in the episode “Wedding Day Sale.”
  • Nichole Bloom (Shameless) as Cheyenne Tyler Lee, a Cloud 9 associate who is pregnant at the start of the series.
  • Mark McKinney (Slings and Arrows) as Glenn Sturgis, Cloud 9’s store manager.
