Decades Gets Rose Marie Documentary; TBS Orders More Last O.G. and Search Party

Decades - Wait for Your Laugh

DECADES is proud to announce that on Tuesday, May 1, 2018, they will be the home of the television premiere of the film documentary Wait for Your Laugh. The documentary is the untold story of fame, love, tragedy and 90 years of American show business through the eyes of the woman who did it all -- Rose Marie. Entertainer Rose Marie, famous as Sally Rogers on The Dick Van Dyke Show and as the top center square on Hollywood Squares, had a varied and compelling showbiz career that spanned 90 years and took her everywhere from humble stages to Vaudeville to Broadway and from the early days of radio to the silver screen to the living-room television set. Wait for Your Laugh chronicles Rose Marie's one-of-a-kind; nine-decade showbiz journey with commentary and contributions from Carl Reiner, Dick Van Dyke, Tim Conway, Peter Marshall and others.

The DECADES television premiere of the film, by Jason Wise, Christina Wise and Jackson Myers in association with Forgotten Man Films, also features behind-the-scenes color footage from Rose Marie's personal collection, capturing the backstage antics on The Dick Van Dyke Show and rare footage from her other sets.


The Last O.G. and Search Party

TBS has given season pickups to two of its original series. Cable's #1 comedy The Last O.G. will return with a second season and the blistering breakout comedy-thriller Search Party is renewed for a third season. Season one of The Last O.G. starring Tracy Morgan, Tiffany Haddish and executive produced by Jordan Peele has so far reached a multiplatform audience of nearly 25 million viewers across TBS' linear, digital, mobile and on-demand platforms. It is the largest cable comedy premiere since 2015 and is 2018's top cable comedy show. Starring Alia Shawkat, Meredith Hagner, John Early, John Reynolds and Brandon Micheal Hall, Search Party grew double-digits in its sophomore season, was TBS' #1 series on digital, and became the fastest TBS original to reach one million views on VOD in season one. On Demand and digital views account for 11% of the show's multiplatform reach, with an on-demand audience as much as 17 years younger than linear.

The Last O.G. centers on Tray (Morgan), an ex-con released from a 15-year prison stint to a changed and unfamiliar world. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, Tray discovers that his former girlfriend Shay (Tiffany Haddish) is married to another man and has been raising Tray’s twins, who he never knew existed. Search Party is a series about a group of privileged, self-absorbed twenty-somethings covering up a murder.
