TBS has just unleashed trailers for two new upcoming sitcoms coming in 2016. “People of Earth” stars Wyatt Cenac (“The Daily Show”) as a reporter investigating a recent string of supposed alien abduction going on around the world. As his search probes deeper, though, he begins to think that he may be an abductee as well.
Meanwhile, “Search Party” stars Alia Shawkat (“Arrested Development”) as a disgruntled Brooklynite whose personal and professional struggles are put aside by the disappearance of an old college friend. She decides to perform her own investigation, much to the chagrin of everyone else around.
Evidenced by these trailers, both shows fit in with the gradual rebranding the network is embracing following a recent change of management, creating shows that are edgier and more risqué than what has aired in the past.
Check the trailers out above and below. Other new TBS shows premiering this year include “Angie Tribeca,” “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee,” “Wrecked” and “The Detour.”
