Jane Fonda, Lily Tomlin, Dolly Parton, and Dabney Coleman in 9 to 5 (1980)

Whether it's drama (Masters of Sex, Mad Men) or comedy (Silicon Valley, The Office), the workplace regularly pops up as a setting on television. It's less common, however, to see our working lives on the silver screen.

WNYC's Sara Fishko examines how this part of daily existence is portrayed on film, in this edition of Fishko Files. (Produced in 2006)
