The Guest Book series premiere airs on Thursday, August 3 at 10 pm. TBS released the first trailer this week and it’s full of familiar faces. You can watch it below.
TBS’s newest comedy series The Guest Book is set to premiere Thursday, Aug. 3, with back-to-back episodes starting at 10 p.m. (ET/PT). The Guest Book emerged from Emmy(R) winner and series creator Greg Garcia’s habit of writing fictitious stories in the guest books of various rental cabins in an effort to freak out the next renters. Now he is bringing those stories to life on TBS. While the house and cast of characters living in this small mountain town remain the same, each episode will feature a different set of vacationing guests.
The Guest Book’s regular and recurring cast members include Kellie Martin (Army Wives) as Officer Kimberly Leahy, Charlie Robinson (Hart of Dixie) as Wilfrid, Aloma Wright (Suits) as Emma, Carly Jibson (Broadway’s Hairspray) as Vivian, and Frank, played by Lou Wilson (Tween Fest). Rounding out the first season cast is Garret Dillahunt (Raising Hope) as Andrew, Laura Bell Bundy (Scream Queens) as Jessica and Eddie Steeples (My Name Is Earl) as Eddie.
Arkansas Traveler, the western that pulled a disappearing act on us a few years ago, has now reappeared as a web series. The first episode is available on YouTube and Vimeo, and you can check it out below. The next one will go up on Wednesday, June 21.
Garret has joined the cast of Widows, Steve McQueen’s upcoming heist thriller that follows the widows of four robbers as they set out to finish the job that got their husbands killed.
The cast is even crazier than 12 Years. Viola Davis, Cynthia Erivo, Robert Duvall, Liam Neeson, André Holland, Elizabeth Debicki, Michelle Rodriguez, Colin Farrell and Daniel Kaluuya are among the people announced so far.
The script was written by McQueen and Gillian Flynn and production is expected to begin this summer.
Garret will make an appearance on this week’s episode of Blindspot, which airs on Wednesday (April 5) at 8 pm on NBC. A few details about the episode, from EW:
The Raising Hope and Justified alum will play Travis, an Iraq war veteran who spent years running from his problems and is now suffering the consequences. On a chance encounter with Special Agent Reade (Rob Brown), the two men bond, and Travis encourages Reade not to make the same mistakes.
Elsewhere, Mindy has been picked up for its 6th and final season. New episodes will be released in September so, between that and The Guest Book, which premieres some time in August, there’s a lot to look forward to this summer/fall.
