TBS Gets Wrecked; Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll Returns June 30 on FX

Wrecked

TBS, a division of Turner, has set the premiere date for Wrecked, the network's new ensemble comedy about a group of strangers stranded on a deserted island following a plane crash. The latest in TBS's growing slate of daring new comedies, Wrecked is set to take off Tuesday, June 14, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT) with back-to-back episodes. Wrecked is a single-camera comedy that centers on a diverse group of survivors adjusting to being stranded on an uninhabited island, a dangerous new world where they must face many threats – mostly brought on by themselves. No longer plugged into the rest of the world, the group struggles to navigate their makeshift society while also learning to live without such modern comforts as indoor plumbing, Wi-Fi, social media and Chipotle.

The ensemble cast for Wrecked includes Zach Cregger (About a Boy, Miss March), Rhys Darby (What We Do in the Shadows, Yes Man), Jessica Lowe (Blended, Glitch), Asif Ali (The 4 to 9ers: The Day Crew, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Ally Maki (2 Broke Girls, Hot in Cleveland), Will Greenberg (Cloverfield, Halt and Catch Fire), Brooke Dillman (Superbad, Bob's Burgers), Ginger Gonzaga (Ted, Mixology) and Brian Sacca (The Wolf of Wall Street, Single Dads).


Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll

FX has set the premiere dates for its summer comedy series Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll and drama Tyrant. Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll, the comedy created by and starring Denis Leary, will begin its second season on FX on Thursday, June 30 at 10 pm ET/PT. The 10-episode second season stars Leary, John Corbett, Elizabeth Gillies, Elaine Hendrix, Robert Kelly and John Ales. Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll centers on "Johnny Rock" (Leary), lead singer of a legendary early 90s New York band called The Heathens. Known for living up to their name, the band partied so long and so hard that even Keith Richards thought they needed to slow things down. The Heathens were on the brink of becoming famous for their kickass live shows and the release of their highly anticipated first album. Until they broke up. The same day the album dropped. Because lead guitarist Flash (Corbett) found Johnny in bed with his wife. So the band became legendary for all the wrong reasons - like self-destructing sooner than any group in rock-n-roll history. 25 years later, Johnny's massively talented daughter Gigi (Gillies) reunites Johnny, Flash, and the rest of their dysfunctional rock and roll family - Ava (Hendrix), Bam Bam (Kelly) and Rehab (Ales) and- to be her new backup band, The Assassins. Together they've got another shot at rock glory.

Tyrant, the drama from Emmy(R) and Golden Globe(R) Award-winning Executive Producer Howard Gordon, will return to FX for its third season on Wednesday, July 6 at 10 pm ET/PT. Tyrant is the story of an unassuming American family drawn into the inner workings of a turbulent Middle Eastern nation
