People of Earth Series Order Wyatt Cenac TBS

TBS Greenlights Wyatt Cenac Comedy People of Earth, From Greg Daniels

The laughs are out there.

TBS has given a series order to People of Earth, a comedy starring Daily Show alum Wyatt Cenac as a skeptical journalist investigating a support group for alleged alien abductees.

In the series, from Conan O’Brien and Greg Daniels (The Office) and formerly known as The Group, Cenac’s Ozzie Graham slowly becomes sympathetic to the survivors’ stories and eventually comes to suspect that maybe he is an abductee, as well.

The cast includes Ana Gasteyer (Suburgatory), Oscar Nuñez (The Office), Michael Cassidy (Men at Work), Da’Vine Joy Randolph (Selfie), Brian Huskey (Veep) and Tracee Chimo (Orange Is the New Black).

People of Earth was created by David Jenkins, who wrote the pilot and serves as a co-executive producer. The 10-episode season will be produced by O’Brien’s Conaco LLC and Warner Horizon Television.
