All TBS Original Comedies Seeing Ratings Growth Over Previous Seasons

Turner’s TBS has renewed three of the network’s most recent hit original series: The Guest Book, People of Earth and Wrecked. All three shows rank among the top 10 cable comedies with adults 18-49 in Live +7, and The Guest Book is cable's #1 new comedy series of the year. The network's summer series join TBS' previous 2017 renewals, including the dysfunctional family comedy The Detour and police procedural spoof Angie Tribeca.

"Since rebranding this network just two years ago, we have renewed 100% of our scripted originals, which have all generated impressive audience growth in an environment that’s seeing mostly declines," said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. "Our shows are connecting with fans and we’re going to keep making these genuinely funny comedies with the best creators in this business."

The most recognizable name in the bunch is likely Louise Brealey, who became a fan favorite on BBC’s Sherlock as the lovelorn Molly Hooper. Brealey will take on the role of Gillian Chamberlain, a witch who resents Diana Bishop’s resistance to embracing the Oxford coven.

Author Deborah Harkness recently told EW she’s been hearing Bluemel’s voice in her head as she writes the next book in the best-selling All Souls series. “The person who I have heard creeping more into my attention is the person who’s playing Marcus because I’m spending so much more time with Marcus,” she said. “I hear it with a slightly different inflection than I might have previously and that’s just a lot of fun.

Scottish actor Greg McHugh will portray Hamish Osborne, daemon and loyal confidante of Matthew Clairmont. Aisling Loftus (War and Peace) will take on the role of Sophie Norman, a pregnant daemon who ends up playing a crucial role in the centuries-old intrigue of the All Souls trilogy.

Elarica Johnson, who keen Harry Potter fans will recognize from a brief scene at the beginning of Harry Potter and the Half Blood Princess, will step into the shoes of Juliette Durand, a bloodthirsty and murderous vampire from Matthew’s past.

Miriam Shepherd, the prickly vampire and Matthew Clairmont’s lab assistant, will be played by Aiysha Hart (Atlantis).

Malin Buska (Satu Järvinen), Trevor Eve (Gerbert D’Aurillac), Gregg Chillin (Domenico Michele), Dustin Demri-Burns (Sean), David Newman (Stephen), Adam Stevenson (James), Sadie Shimmin (Head of Faculty), and Michael Culkin (Professor Marsh) round out Monday’s casting announcement.

Sabine met Taka during his investigations of season one, and they’ve been together ever since.

Season 2 of the supernatural thriller drama follows three unrelated people (David Ajala, Lee, Brocheré)) whose worlds collide when they discover newfound abilities to manipulate dreams – and, by extension, the dreamers themselves. They must determine how to use their gifts once they realize the fate of the world rests with them.

Based on the 2013 cult film, The Machine is set in a world that is being transformed by the emergence of artificial intelligence.
