TBS has green-lit People of Earth, starring everyone’s faves, Wyatt Cenac and Ana Gasteyer, with a premiere date pending. The show is about a support group for alien abductees run by Gasteyer’s character, Gina Morrison, a part-time therapist. Some of the supposed abductees include Oscar Nuñez, Alice Wetterlund, Luka Jones, Brian Huskey, Nancy Lenehan, Tracee Chimo, Da’Vine Joy Randolph, Björn Gustafsson, and Ken Hall. Cenac plays Ozzie Graham, a skeptical journalist who investigates the support group to write about the members’ supposed alien encounters. The more Ozzie snoops, the more he realizes it’s possible that he himself was abducted! Not so skeptical anymore, are you, Ozzie? We hope it’s a UFO. You know, an Unbelievably Funny Outstandingtelevisionshow.
