Animal Kingdom, Angie Tribeca, Wrecked renewed at TNT, TBS
TV’s newest crime family just landed a second season. TNT has renewed Animal Kingdom, the Ellen Barkin drama about a family who surfs by day and steals by night.
The series, which airs on Tuesdays at 9 p.m. ET, is based on the Australian film that scored Jacki Weaver an Oscar nomination. In addition to Barkin, the show stars Shawn Hatosy (Southland) and Scott Speedman (Felicity).
“Animal Kingdom has signaled the new tone for TNT dramas and is moving the network in the direction we hoped it would,” Sarah Aubrey, EVP of original programming for TNT, said in a statement. “I’m confident that our strategy of working with high-caliber talent and then getting out of their way will continue to pay off.”
Also renewed by Turner are two TBS comedies, Angie Tribeca and Wrecked. Tribeca, starring Rashida Jones and produced by Steve and Nancy Carrell, returns for a third season, while the Wrecked, a parody of Lost, will be back for a second season.
“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 Wietz, EVP 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.”
Angie Tribeca airs on Mondays at 9 p.m. ET and Wrecked on Tuesdays at 10 p.m. ET.
