The two played humorous versions of themselves: Jake is usually depicted as a sensible "regular guy", and Amir as his annoying, obsessive and odd co-worker. The series began on May 23, 2007, and new videos were posted every Tuesday to College Humor's website and the series' Tumblr blog. On December 18, 2013, it was announced that the web series would be adapted into a TV series, to air on TBS and be executive-produced by Ed Helms, Hurwitz, Blumenfeld, and several others.
On January 27, 2015, College Humor announced that the series would air its last 8 episodes beginning on February 17, 2015.
As they grew more popular, College Humor began incorporating them into its website as an original feature, collaborating with the pair to create further episodes.
Jake explains that Jake and Amir was never intended to be a series, "We actually had no idea we were creating a series at the time we were doing it.
It kind of grew from there." The duo can create episodes of the show no matter where they are.
