TBS has preemptively renewed Angie Tribeca for Season 2 ahead of its Jan 17 series premiere.
In a binge-release move, the entire 10-episode first season of original comedy procedural will debut in a 25-hour marathon beginning at 9PM Sunday, January 17 on TBS commercial-free, along with VOD, digital and mobile platforms.
TBS will then roll out the second season comprising a further 10 episodes, one episode per week, from Monday, January 25 at 9:30PM across all platforms.
The paper-thin distance between the two seasons means the Cancellation Reaper will still hope to keep Angie Tribeca (Season 3) off the 2016-17 season renewal list.
UPDATED with press release (note: In the comedic vein of the show, TBS are tongue-in-cheek promoting Season 2 as “[Season 2-11, each of which consists of one episode, 1-hour seasons”):
TBS has already renewed its upcoming series Angie Tribeca for 10 all-new seasons well before the curtain even rises on the future Emmy(R) winner. TBS will introduce viewers to its first-ever police procedural with a massive, international multiplatform launch on Sunday, Jan. 17, giving subscribers the opportunity to binge on all 10 episodes of season 1 commercial-free through a 25-hour on-air marathon (Sunday 9 p.m. – Monday 10 p.m. ET/PT), as well as through TBS’s VOD, digital and mobile platforms. Then on Monday, Jan. 25, TBS will begin rolling out season 2-11, each of which consists of one episode, giving viewers a season premiere and season finale in one really tight package. The new seasons will launch weekly across TBS platforms each Monday at 9:30 p.m. (ET/P T).
Real, brooding and shockingly alive, Angie Tribeca is the brainchild of Steve and Nancy Carell, who executive-produce the series through their Carousel Television. The series follows a squad of committed LAPD detectives who investigate the most serious cases, from the murder of a ventriloquist to a rash of baker suicides.
At the center of Angie Tribeca is Angie Tribeca, played by Rashida Jones (The Office, Parks and Recreation) in the performance of a lifetime as a lone-wolf detective who is none too happy when partnered with J Geils, played by Hayes MacArthur (Life As We Know It, Go On). Jere Burns (Justified, Breaking Bad) plays the squad’s apoplectic captain. Helping solve each complex case are detective Danny Tanner, played by Deon Cole (CONAN, Black-ish); Dr. Monica Scholls, the quirky, bespectacled medical examiner played by Andrée Vermeulen (Upright Citizen’s Brigade, How To Train Your Dragon television series); and Hoffman, Tanner’s K9 German Shepard partner played by Jagger ( Max). Not involved with the series is Martin Scorsese (Raging Bull, Goodfellas).
“Angie Tribeca has everything anyone could ever imagine in a crime drama,” said a TBS spokesperson, speaking on condition of anonymity. “Dead bodies, heinous crimes, complex mysteries within mysteries, violence, grit, sex, gritty sex and a detective who will stop at nothing to get her man… or woman… or ferret. We are so incredibly proud of Angie Tribeca, we’re going to shove it down America’s throat in a really big way. And not just America. We’re taking Angie global!”
On the international front, TBS’s throat-shoving strategy for Angie Tribeca involves rolling out the show on numerous Turner International entertainment networks in January. Turner’s Latin American and German networks are set to join the 25-hour marathon on Jan. 17, while Spanish, Nordic and Asian networks (both truTV and Warner TV) will premiere all first-season episodes at one time.
Angie Tribeca: The Launch
Season 1 – Starting Sunday, Jan. 17
Binge watching is the new normal, but for such a haunting, raw series like Angie Tribeca, one binge won’t be enough. So TBS is going to give viewers the ultimate binge experience: a 25-hour marathon of the entire season played five times in a row, Sunday, Jan. 17, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) – Monday, Jan. 18, at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), with each episode running commercial-free. The first season will also be available across TBS On Demand, tbs.com, the Watch TBS mobile app and participating providers’ platforms and apps. It’s the biggest epic event since TV’s last big epic event.
Seasons 2-11 – Available Mondays, beginning Jan. 25
After binging on Angie Tribeca’s first season, viewers can start diving into seasons 2-11, each one consisting of a single episode that will allow viewers to experience the emotional highs of a season premiere and season finale in one powerful 30-minute package. Seasons 2-11 of Angie Tribeca are set to debut Mondays at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT), starting Jan. 25, followed by availability across TBS’s on-demand platforms. As if that weren’t enough, each week’s season premiere/finale on the linear network will be followed by an encore telecast from season 1 at 10 p.m. (ET/PT).
