'Wrecked' Canceled at TBS
The ax has begun to fall at TBS.
The comedy-focused cable network has canceled half-hour Wrecked after three seasons.
The Lost-like spoof starring Zach Cregger about a group of passengers whose airplane crashes in the ocean had been awaiting word on a fourth season since it wrapped Oct. 2. The season three finale drew a tiny 55,000 total live-same-day viewers.
The decision to cancel Wrecked comes as the future of Turner's scripted originals remain under the microscope as new parent company WarnerMedia plans to launch its streaming platform — complete with HBO — in late 2019.
Turner's originals — including TBS' Angie Tribeca and The Guest Book — are both awaiting word on their respective futures. Both series last aired in December 2018. TBS' current scripted lineup includes Search Party, The Last O.G., The Detour, Miracle Workers and animated comedy American Dad. Meanwhile, a couple of TBS comedic game shows — Drop the Mic and Joker's Wild — moved over to its drama-focused sibling TNT, where they joined originals Animal Kingdom and Claws. TNT, for its part, has yet to schedule long-gestating originals Snowpiercer, Tell Me Your Secrets or Raised by Wolves.
TBS and TNT executives, under president Kevin Reilly, are also overseeing the upcoming WarnerMedia streaming platform, with former NBC Entertainment president Bob Greenblatt overseeing the bulk of the media giant's scripted originals.
