It's the time of year when networks end their 20+ episode long shows and start anouncing return dates for old shows alongside premiere dates for new shows. Yesterday, we brought you news about HBO's Ballers and Vice Principals. Today, we've got loads more shows spanning over a handful of networks.
First, ABC has the premiere of the new version of Uncle Buck on Tuesday, June 14th. Mike Epps stars as the titular character, a role once held by the great John Candy in a John Huges movie. ABC is usually good with sitcoms -- even the ones that don't stick a landing are better than most other shows. The network will air two back to back episodes at 9:00 PM and 9:30 PM.
On Tuesday, June 14th, TBS is premiering a new series called Wrecked. It's a comedy set on a deserted island and a bunch of people are stranded on it. The cast is big and includes Rhys Darby, Jessica Lowe, Asif Ali, Will Greenberg, Brooke Dillman, Ginger Gonzaga, Zach Cregger, Brian Sacca, and Ally Maki. The promos look funny enough and, if TBS' latest sitcom offerings in Angie Tribeca and The Detour are any indication, then this show should shine. Back to back episodes start at 10:00 PM.
Buried deep in a Hollywood Reporter article, found by Splitsider, Comedians in Cars Getting Coffee is set to return to Crackle on June 15th. Season 8 (!) of the web series will have some of the biggest stars yet and a few "why the heck didn't Jerry ask these people on in season 1?!?" These guests include Lorne Michaels, Margaret Cho, Judd Apatow, JB Smoove, Jim Gaffigan, and John Oliver.
And, finally, if you like Sex&Drugs&Rock&Roll or any combination thereof, then you're in luck. The Denis Leary led FX series is back for season two on Thursday, June 30th at 10:00 PM. The Deadline article uses the synopsis to the show so I'm not writing about it here.
