It is not the big hit TNT was hoping for…at least not yet. But the cable net has issued a second season renewal to recently launched drama “Animal Kingdom.” Based on the 2010 film and debuting on June 14, “Animal Kingdom” follows a 17-year-old boy, who, after the death of his mother, moves in with the Codys, a criminal family clan governed by matriarch Smurf (Ellen Barkin).
Sister cable net TBS, additionally, has picked-up new seasons of comedies “Wrecked” and “Angie Tribeca.” “Wrecked,” which will head into season two, centers on a diverse group of airplane crash survivors on a remote island where they must face many threats – mostly brought on by themselves. The cast includes Asif Ali, Zach Creggor, Rhys Darby, Brooke Dillman, Ginger Gonzaga, Will Greenberg, Kessica Lowe, Ally Maki and Brian Sacca. And “Angie Tribeca,” which moves into season three, focuses on a squad of LAPD detectives. It stars Rashida Jones, Hayes MacArthur, Jere Burns, Deon Cole, Andree Vermeulen and Jagger.
