TBS Orders Deserted Island Comedy Pilot ‘Wrecked’
TBS just gave a pilot order to a new comedy series described as “Lost meets It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia.” Titled Wrecked, the single-cam comedy comes from up-and-coming sibling writing team Justin Shipley and Jordan Shipley. Here’s the full synopsis for the show:
Wrecked chronicles the aftermath of a plane crashing on a remote island. Two best friends, along with an extremely diverse group of survivors, must adjust to life in a dangerous new world that poses unique threats, which they mostly bring upon themselves. Danny and Owen, who weren’t quite killing it pre-crash, are given the chance to finally be the kind of men they’ve always wanted to be. No longer plugged in, they become the unexpected leaders of this new society devoid of such comforts as social media, wi-fi, indoor plumbing and fast food restaurants.
According to Deadline, Wrecked joins TBS’s comedy development slate alongside Broken Lizard’s in-the-works series Quality Time as well as an untitled show from Daily Show correspondents Samantha Bee and Jason Jones described as a “family vacation anthology series.”
