TBS's New Comedy "Wrecked" to Launch Tuesday, June 14, With Back-to-Back Episodes at 10/9c
Ensemble Comedy Gives New Meaning to Being Trapped in Paradise
TBS, a division of Turner, has set the premiere date for Wrecked, the network's new ensemble comedy about a group of strangers stranded on a deserted island following a plane crash. The latest in TBS's growing slate of daring new comedies, Wrecked is set to take off Tuesday, June 14, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) with back-to-back episodes.
Wrecked is a single-camera comedy that centers on a diverse group of survivors adjusting to being stranded on an uninhabited island, a dangerous new world where they must face many threats - mostly brought on by themselves. No longer plugged into the rest of the world, the group struggles to navigate their makeshift society while also learning to live without such modern comforts as indoor plumbing, Wi-Fi, social media and Chipotle.
The ensemble cast for Wrecked includes Zach Cregger (About a Boy, Miss March), Rhys Darby (What We Do in the Shadows, Yes Man), Jessica Lowe (Blended, Glitch), Asif Ali (The 4 to 9ers: The Day Crew, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Ally Maki (2 Broke Girls, Hot in Cleveland), Will Greenberg (Cloverfield, Halt and Catch Fire), Brooke Dillman (Superbad, Bob's Burgers), Ginger Gonzaga (Ted, The Morning After) and Brian Sacca (The Wolf of Wall Street, Single Dads).
Wrecked comes to TBS from the fresh minds of writers and executive producers Justin Shipley & Jordan Shipley and producer Jesse Hara (Night Owls, Happythankyoumoreplease). Moses Port (Community, Happy Endings) serves as executive producer and showrunner on the series, which is being produced by TBS.
