Animal Kingdom TNT

TVLine Items: Animal Kingdom Debut Moved, Top Gear Return Date and More

TNT is keeping Animal Kingdom in its cage a little longer than anticipated.

Originally scheduled for June 7, the cabler’s upcoming Ellen Barkin vehicle will now launch with a two-hour premiere on Tuesday, June 14, at 9/8c.

Animal Kingdom stars Barkin as the matriarch of a Southern California family that is prone to indulgence and excess, funded by criminal activities. When 17-year-old Joshua “J” Cody’s mother dies of a heroin overdose, he moves to the beach to live with the law-breaking clan. Scott Speedman (Felicity) and Shawn Hatosy (Southland) also star.
