Wrecked, featuring guests Ally Maki, Zach Cregger, Brooke Dillman, Brian Sacca, Asif Ali, Will Greenberg, and Jessica Lowe
Wrecked is TBS’s hit survival comedy about a diverse group of airplane passengers stranded on an uninhabited island, a dangerous new world where they must face many threats – mostly brought on by themselves. After surviving a pirate invasion and finally recovering from the loss of wi-fi, the gang most recently found themselves shipwrecked on a mysterious billionaire’s private island where they’re forced to hunt each other to the death in a basic-cable battle royale.
