The network’s summer series join TBS’ previous 2017 renewals, including the dysfunctional family comedy “The Detour” and police procedural spoof “Angie Tribeca.”
“Since rebranding this network just two years ago, we have renewed 100% of our scripted originals, which have all generated impressive audience growth in an environment that’s seeing mostly declines,” said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. “Our shows are connecting with fans and we’re going to keep making these genuinely funny comedies with the best creators in this business.”
Executive-produced by Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels along with creator David Jenkins and showrunner Norm Hiscock, “People of Earth” centers on a support group for alien abductees in Beacon, N.Y. In the show’s second season, StarCrossed’s members must reckon with the arrival of FBI Agent
They take very different approaches — from “The Leftovers” and from each other — but two new anthologized half-hours dive head-first into the possibilities offered by those anonymous spaces full of the dreams and, sometimes, the unsavory detritus of strangers.
Each time someone checks into “Room 104,” all traces of the previous occupants have been erased. But the same slightly downmarket motel room is the setting of each installment of this offering from Jay and Mark Duplass and fellow executive producer Xan Aranda. One episode even dwells on the emotional life of the maid
Epix has released a sneak peek of its upcoming series “Get Shorty,” starring Ray Romano and Chris O’Dowd.

The preview sees O’Dowd pitching his story to Moreweather, with initially fruitless results.

January 5, Episode 5.10 "Are You My Mother?": Cooper struggles with whether or not to punish Mason after he catches him stealing; Pete and Violet find it hard to split time with Lucas now that they're living apart; Addison makes changes in her home life to prepare for a potential new baby; Violet and Jake work with two women and a man involved in a polyamorous triad; meanwhile Amelia returns to the practice and realizes how badly she hurt Sheldon when she was abusing drugs.

Boosted by a likable performance by Deon Richmond -- a regular on the WB's "Sister Sister" -- this issue under October Films new genre division Rogue Pictures could hook up profitably with a young urban audience, though it might be getting a little late in the semester to attract the targeted demographic.
Richmond demonstrates a nice, light comedic touch as Greg "G" Reed, a daydreaming high school senior who frequently drifts off into amusing, Walter Mitty-type fantasies.
While his parents (Aloma Wright and Harold Sylvester) are getting just a little concerned that he has yet to fill out his college applications, G's got more pressing things on his wandering mind -- namely the high school prom and whether his dream date could ever be the smart, beautiful and highly unattainable Cinny Hawkins (Maia Campbell).
That's pretty much it in the plot department. Fortunately, actor-turned-director David Raynr and screenwriter Gary Hardwick manage to get something a little more substantial out of the humorous characters and the actors portraying them, which also include G's feisty, cholesterol-loving Gramps (Bill Henderson) and his righteous, encouraging teacher Mr. Shapic (Michael Warren, doing a fine tribute to "Room 222"'s Mr. Dixon).
Technical contributions are uniformly smooth, while busy composer Michel Colombier's ("How Stella Got Her Groove Back") laid-back score grooves along agreeably.
