Fox has a new addition to its Sunday night comedy line-up with Ghosted, a new paranormal sitcom starring Craig Robinson and Adam Scott. The new series kicks off at 8:30 p.m. ET on Sunday, October 1, although it could be delayed because of football coverage. Read on for a preview of the spooky new series.
Ghosted is styled as a buddy-cop comedy that just so happens to involve aliens and ghosts. Scott (Parks and Recreation) stars as Max Jennifer, a former Stanford professor now stuck working at a book store who was fired by the university after he insisted that his wife was abducted by aliens. Robinson (The Office) plays mall cop Leroy Wright, who was fired by the LAPD after his partner was killed.
The two unlikely partners are brought together when a group called “The Bureau Underground” enlists them to help their Los Angeles investigations. Leroy is skeptical, but Max jumps at the chance to work for them. Ally Walker (Colony, Longmire) co-stars as the captain of the bureau.
The series was created by Tom Gormican, whose only other work is the screenplay to the 2014 Zac Efron romantic comedy That Awkward Moment. Workaholics producer Kevin Etten also works on the show.
