TBS has announced that comedies People of Earth, Wrecked, and The Guest Book have all been renewed.
“Since rebranding this network just two years ago, we have renewed 100% of our scripted originals, which have all generated impressive audience growth in an environment that’s seeing mostly declines,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “Our shows are connecting with fans and we’re going to keep making these genuinely funny comedies with the best creators in this business.”
From newcomer David Jenkins and Greg Daniels (The Office), People of Earth follows alien abductee support group StarCrossed as they deal with how their experiences have impacted their lives. This season has introduced FBI Agent Alex Foster, who gets assigned to Beacon, New York looking for Jonathan Walsh.
Wrecked chronicles the aftermath of a plane crash that leaves a group of people stranded on a desert island. The recently completed second season found pirates invading the island right after the remaining passengers have recovered from the initial trauma of their new situation.
From Greg Garcia (Raising Hope), The Guest Book is an anthology comedy that takes place at a small mountain cottage and highlights the guests that come passing through town. The series, one of two episodic anthologies based in a single location to premiere this summer (the other being HBO’s Room 104), shows what brought the guests to Froggy Cottage and how their experience changes their fate.
People of Earth airs Mondays at 10:30 on TBS, with The Guest Book airing Thursdays at 10:30 and Wrecked off the air until next summer. They’re part of a scripted slate for TBS that includes American Dad, The Detour, and Angie Tribeca.
