TBS used to be the place to go for reruns of Family Guy, The Big Bang Theory and Seinfeld, but during the past couple of years, the Turner-owned network has added original shows. The latest is People of Earth, a new project executive produced by The Office's Greg Daniels and Conan host Conan O'Brien. People of Earth is the kind of quirky series that will fit on the TBS schedule next to Rashida Jones' Angie Tribeca and the upcoming Search Party with Alia Shawkat.
People of Earth
stars comedian Wyatt Cenac (The Daily Show
) as a New York journalist who is investigating a mysterious car crash. While reporting, he finds a self-help group for those who claim to be abducted by aliens. At first, he's skeptical but learns that there is some truth to their stories. There's also a chance that he was a victim of an alien abduction, too. The series was created by David Jenkins.
The series features plenty of today's best sitcom veterans, including The Office
's Oscar Nunez and Mean Girls
