EVP of Programming for TBS Brett Weitz says, "We couldn't be prouder of these two comedies and that they've been recognized by critics and audiences alike for their uniquely hilarious points of view in a very CROWDED field. We truly believe 'The Last O.G.' and 'Search Party' are two of the best shows on television."
Tracy Morgan and Tiffany Haddish star in TBS' The Last O.G., a new comedy series that Morgan executive produces alongside creator and executive producer Jordan Peele. THE LAST O.G. centers on Tray (Tracy Morgan), an ex-con shocked to see just how much the world has changed when he is released from prison on good behavior after a 15-year stint. Returning to his newly gentrified Brooklyn neighborhood, he discovers that his former girlfriend, Shay (Tiffany Haddish), has married an affable, successful white man who is helping raise the twins Tray never knew existed.
TBS's SEARCH PARTY is a dark comedy about four self-absorbed 20-somethings who become entangled in an ominous mystery when a former college acquaintance named Chantal suddenly disappears. Led by Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development), the cast of SEARCH PARTY features an ensemble of young comic actors, including John Early, John Reynolds, Meredith Hagner and Brandon Micheal Hall. The entire first season of SEARCH PARTY is available for binging through TBS On Demand, the TBS mobile app and tbs.com, as well as through the apps and sites for TBS's partner television providers.
Search Party centers on Dory (Shawkat), a fragile, frustrated, life-long doormat who's not particularly proud of her impact on the world, especially since her greatest accomplishment to date is organizing clothes to be donated to Goodwill for her wealthy employer. Dory feels stuck in a stale and disconnected relationship with her boyfriend, Drew (Reynolds), a kind of clueless, complacent, spoon-fed doofus who just really loves Christmas. She also feels removed from her closest friends, Elliott (Early), a self-diagnosed narcissist who loves adding job titles to his designer-stylist-curator multi-hyphenate lifestyle, and Portia (Hagner), an actress always struggling to balance the challenging demands of chronic insecurity and pathological self-absorption.
Search Party is executive-produced by Michael Showalter (Hello, My Name Is Doris, Wet Hot American Summer), along with Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers, whose credits include the 2014 SXSW Film Festival Grand Jury Award-winning feature film Fort Tilden and Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp. Tony Hernandez (Broad City, Inside Amy Schumer, Louie) and Lilly Burns (Broad City, Difficult People, Younger) also serve as executive producers. Turner's Studio T is producing Search Party, in association with Jax Media.
