TBS has lost their mind. This week, the network announced they’ve ordered a new pilot titled World’s End.
The comedy comes from Jonathan Ames, who previously created HBO’s Bored to Death and currently serves as an executive producer on Starz’ Blunt Talk.
World’s End follows Henry Mueller (Hamish Linklater), a charismatic high school English teacher who has a breakdown and is committed to a mental institution. There, under the watchful eye of Louise Baldwin (Wanda Sykes), he begins to feel “sane.” Henry starts to question the system and the methods used to contain the inmates, ultimately becoming the leader of an inmate revolt. It’s a dark comedy about an asylum that operates like a family, and as in all families, the question of who is sane and who is not is open for discussion.”
