TBS pilot Wrecked, a single-camera comedy from up-and-coming writers Justin Shipley & Jordan Shipley and producer Jesse Hara, has set its ensemble cast. Described as Lost meets It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia, Wrecked follows a group of extremely diverse survivors of a plane crash on a remote island who must adjust to life in a dangerous new world that poses unique threats — mostly brought upon themselves. No longer plugged in, the group must navigate this new society and learn to live without the comforts of 2015 like social media, Wi-Fi, indoor plumbing and Chipotle.
Zach Cregger will play the lead role of Owen, a flight attendant who only took this job out of college to travel and avoid starting his life. Ginger Gonzaga (Ted) will play Emma, who’s on her way to Thailand with her friend, Florence, after having decided to drop out of medical school. Jessica Lowe plays Florence, intellectually pretentious and a feminist in theory, she spouts complex, forward-thinking social ideas on which she’s too lazy or scared to act. Asif Ali, plays Pack, a sports agent who’s tied to his iPhone like it’s an umbilical cord. Ally Maki, plays Jess, who is traveling to Thailand with her handsome douchebag boyfriend Todd, with whom she struggles to get along. Will Greenberg plays Jess’ boyfriend Todd. Brooke Dillman is Karen, a vice president of Google competitor Bing, who’s a passenger on the plane. James Scott is Liam, seemingly the most handsome man in the world (even after a plane crash), Liam’s done 10 years with British Special Forces before that and now campaigns for human rights for child war refugees. George Basil is Chet, a drunk guy who’s passed out on the plane and doesn’t even realize when it crashes. Rhys Darby plays Steve, a cheerful, good-natured guy who’s traveling on the plane with his enormous dog Brimlow. Brian Sacca plays Danny who wants to be a cop — a profession neither his physique nor work ethic would allow — and is going to Thailand to essentially sow his wild oats before he enrolls in the police academy. Filming on the pilot has started in Puerto Rico.
Cregger is with WME and Principato Young; Ali is with David Shapira & Associates, Aligned Entertainment and Chad Christopher; Scott (Days of Our Lives) is with Haven Entertainment; Maki is with Abrams Artists and Sweeney Entertainment.
