Obliterated is coming to TBS. The new drama comedy has been ordered straight to series, and it comes from the creators of Cobra Kai, who are Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald. Sony Pictures Television is producing the series.
The series tells the story of an elite special forces team that is trying to save Las Vegas from the plot of a terrorist group. They only make one mistake. They deactivate the wrong bomb. The team only realizes this after they go out to celebrate with a few too many drinks. They then have to find the real bomb and deactivate it before it explodes. The series will consist of 10 one-hour long episodes.
TBS released statements made by those behind the series and the network in a press release. Check those out below.
“As TBS’ brand continues to evolve, our primary focus of late has been for us to find dramas that are as much fun as they are high stakes,” said Brett Weitz, general manager, TNT, TBS, truTV. “We’ve worked with Josh in the past and tried to buy Cobra Kai, so letting this series get away from us just wasn’t an option. This incredible team brings heart and absurdity to a situation as serious as saving the world, which makes Obliterated a perfect fit for TBS.”
“We could not be more excited to be making Obliterated with our friends at Sony and TBS, who have embraced our concept and empowered us to push the envelope on how funny, action-packed, heartfelt, and totally badass a one-hour show can be,” said EP’s Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald.
“Jon, Hayden and Josh are incredibly talented visionaries with a unique approach to character and tone. They hit the bullseye with Cobra Kai, also a pitch to series, and have crafted an undeniable story with Obliterated. All of us at Sony Pictures Television are thrilled to be part of their creative journey.” SPT co-president, Jason Clodfelter added.”
