Two Turner properties, TNT and TBS, have renewed three shows between them: ANIMAL KINGDOM, WRECKED and ANGIE TRIBECA.
WRECKED ranks among cable’s Top 25 scripted series for the year-to-date and is the #1 new cable comedy among adults 18-49. ANGIE TRIBECA’s second season premiere delivered cable’s largest increase of adults 18-49 (+41%) for a returning comedy this year. Finally, ANIMAL KINGDOM is pulling in a young audience profile and has been on an upward trajectory since its premiere.
“A year ago we began reinventing TBS, and thanks to the incredible talent behind these shows, we’ve come a long way in a very short amount of time,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “Pulling the trigger on renewals early allows us to build on our success by giving fans new seasons more quickly.”
“ANIMAL KINGDOM has signaled the new tone for TNT dramas and is moving the network in the direction we hoped it would,” said Sarah Aubrey, executive vice president of original programming for TNT. “I’m confident that our strategy of working with high-caliber talent and then getting out of their way will continue to pay off.”
WRECKED currently airs on airs Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET/PT on TBS, ANGIE TRIBECA airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET/PT on TBS and ANIMAL KINGDOM airs Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET/PT. The new seasons of each show will consist of ten episodes and will premiere in 2017.
