'Wrecked' Trailer: TBS Launches Comedy Series 'Lost' Spoof, Toplined By Rhys Darby — Watch


I don’t think this is what Jack had in mind when he screamed to Kate that “We have to go back!” TBS has premiered the first trailer for “Wrecked,” a desert-island comedy that looks mysteriously similar to “Lost.” Rhys Darby, Zach Cregger, Jessica Lowe, Asif Ali, Ally Maki, Will Greenberg, Brooke Dillman, Ginger Gonzaga and Brian Sacca are all in the ensemble cast; no word yet on whether any of them are Others.
