Rashida Jones comedy Angie Tribeca to return in June
The TBS comedy series “Angie Tribeca” will return for a second season this summer. Rashida Jones, Hayes MacArthur, Jere Burns, Deon Cole, Andrée Vermeulen and Jagger the German Shepherd will be back when the popular police drama returns Monday, June 6, exclusively on TBS.
As TBS’s first-ever police procedural, Angie Tribeca comes from Nancy and Steve Carell, who are executive-producing the series along with show runner Ira Ungerleider.
In the ratings, Angie Tribeca is basic cable’s #1 Monday night sitcom and reaches more than 4.2 million viewers per episode across TBS’s linear, VOD, digital and mobile platforms. The series launched in January with a groundbreaking 25-hour “Binge-A-Thon,” generating more than 65 million impressions on social media. In addition, 36% of the Binge-A-Thon viewers were new to TBS.
Angie Tribeca follows a squad of committed LAPD detectives who investigate the most serious cases. At the center is Angie Tribeca, a lone-wolf detective played by Rashida Jones. Hayes MacArthur is her partner, Jay Geils. Jere Burns plays the squad’s apoplectic lieutenant. Helping solve each complex case are detective Danny Tanner, played by Deon Cole; Dr. Monica Scholls, the brilliant, bespectacled medical examiner played by Andrée Vermeulen; and detective David Hoffman, Tanner’s K9 German Shepard partner played by Jagger.
In the second season, Angie and the detectives of the LAPD will investigate the murder of a sushi chef, the death of the “bad boy” in a boy band who gets decapitated by a t-shirt cannon and a band of drug-dealing lifeguards. In addition, they will tackle a difficult case with the help of a romance novelist.
As in its first season, Angie Tribeca’s second season will feature a parade of recognizable guest stars, including; James Franco, Heather Graham, Mary McCormack, Noah Wyle, Maya Rudolph, Eriq La Salle, Danny Pudi, Busy Philipps, Kevin Pollak, Rhys Darby, Ed Begley Jr., Joe Jonas, Joey McIntyre and a few more special surprise guests. (Spoiler Alert: Most of them will turn out to be the perpetrators of the crimes being investigated.) In addition, Alfred Molina will continue filling the community service requirements of his probation by once again playing the recurring role of Dr. Edelweiss.
