TBS has greenlit People of Earth – an original comedy series about a support group for alien abductees.
The ensemble cast includes three-time Emmy winner Wyatt Cenac, Ana Gasteyer, Oscar Nuñez and more. The series conceit is that as an investigative reporter (Cenac), the group’s stories whittle away his skepticism and give him cause to believe he might be an abductee himself.
TBS has ordered ten episodes of People of Earth. A premiere date has yet to be determined. For an overview of the series and a complete cast list, follow the jump.

All right Episode 2 kicks off with Art joining the Clone club. I love it when shows like this let the supporting characters into the secret. For some strange reason I have the feeling Art’s not going to survive this season. My opinion is based on nothing, no insider knowledge or anything, but mark my words, you read it here first.
