Angie Tribeca is an American sitcom created by Steve and Nancy Carell, which aired on TBS. A parody of the police procedural genre, it stars Rashida Jones as the title character, with Hayes MacArthur, Jere Burns, Deon Cole and Andrée Vermeulen in supporting roles.

The first season of Angie Tribeca premiered on January 17–18, 2016,[2] the second season premiered on June 6 of that year, and the third season premiered on April 10, 2017.[3] The fourth and final season was released in its entirety across December 29 and December 30, 2018.

On May 9, 2019, the series was cancelled after four seasons.[4]

Plot

Detective Angie Tribeca, a 10-year veteran of the Los Angeles Police Department's elite RHCU (Really Heinous Crimes Unit), is assigned a new partner, fellow detective Jason "Jay" Geils.[1] The format of each episode involves a different criminal case for the LAPD to solve. The show features nonstop one-liners, jokes, visual humor, and irony.

Development and production

The series was announced by TBS in mid-2014 with a ten-episode order.[5] It was promoted as "...a hilarious spoof of police procedurals in the spirit of Police Squad!". A few gags presented in the preview reel were cited as similar to the TV cop show satire Sledge Hammer!.[6]

Originally intended to premiere in late 2015,[7][8] in November 2015 it was announced that the first season of ten episodes would run uninterrupted on the network and be released through video on demand starting on January 17, 2016.[9] All 10 episodes of season 1 premiered during a 25-hour TV marathon on January 17–18, 2016.[2]

A second season of an additional ten episodes premiered on June 6, 2016.[2][10][11][12] On July 6, 2016, TBS renewed the series for a third season, which premiered on April 10, 2017.[3] The fourth season, which premiered on December 29, 2018, added Bobby Cannavale to the cast.[13]
