“I’m injured, you’re useless. We need each other.”
That’s maybe not the most emotionally compelling enticement to team up with another human being, but for You, Me and the Apocalypse‘s Rhonda (The Office‘s Jenna Fischer), it may have to be enough.
Indeed, as a comet careens toward a doomsday collision with Planet Earth, falsely imprisoned Rhonda realizes she may not have the street smarts to make it to her destination all by herself.
That’s where her white-supremacist prison pal Leanne (Will & Grace‘s Megan Mullally) comes in — promising visions of Driving Miss Daisy… although not quite exactly.
You, Me and the Apocalypse premieres Thurs., Jan 28 at 8/7c on NBC.
