Turner Broadcasting, whose portfolio includes TBS, CNN, truTV, Adult Swim, and Cartoon Network, among multiple others, is moving forward with more original programming. The big news comes at TBS, which got The Daily Show funny couple Jason Jones and Samantha Bee on their own projects. As had been announced, they would be producing a show for TBS starring Jones, and we now know it’s called The Detour. They’re also set to do an “issues-oriented series” (we’re thinking it’ll be similar to something we saw on TDS) with Bee headlining.
Steve and Nancy Carell have a show on TBS called Angie Tribeca starring Rashida Jones, and Conan O’Brien reunites with The Office producer Greg Daniels for a TBS comedy pilot about alien abductees called The Group (nope, not the Mary McCarthy kind). THERE WILL BE SO MUCH SHOUTING.
