TBS held a special panel discussion and reception for Emmy voters at the New Museum in New York City on May 17 to showcase their comedy talent. Gold Derby was on the red carpet and interviewed Samantha Bee (“Full Frontal”), Rashida Jones (“Angie Tribeca“) and Jason Jones (“The Detour“).
The variety talk series “Full Frontal with Samantha Bee” features the “Daily Show” alumna doing a weekly skewering of culture and politics from a feminist slant that is much needed in a male-dominated late-night landscape.
Bee also co-created and produced “The Detour” with her husband Jason Jones. The series follows Jones as a hapless dad who embarks on an ill-fated road trip with his wife (Natalie Zea) and two children (Ashley Gerasimovich and Liam Carroll).
“Angie Tribeca” is in the style of the Leslie Nielsen-led “Police Squad!” and “Naked Gun” parodies.Rashida Jones stars as the title character, a straitlaced police detective who solves cases while a flurry of visual and verbal gags explode around her.
Both “The Detour” and “Angie Tribeca” were renewed for second seasons, while TBS ordered enough new episodes of “Full Frontal” to guarantee that Bee would be able to follow the absurd presidential election all the way to the end of 2016.
