Get Ready For "Search Party" To Become Your Next TV Obsession

It's "Broad City" meets Nancy Drew.

As if there wasn't enough television to watch, you better clear some space on your DVR for Search Party, a new mystery comedy about young, narcissistic New Yorkers that can be described as Broad City meets Nancy Drew.

Deadline describes the new TBS series as a dark comedy "about four self-absorbed 20-somethings who become entangled in an ominous mystery when a former college acquaintance named Chantal suddenly disappears." It stars Alia Shawkat from Arrested Development, as Dory, a twenty-something Brooklynite whose fascination with the disappearance of her friend becomes an obsession in her directionless life.

Search Party is the latest offering from duo Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers who directed last year's indie hit Fort Tilden.

"We're really excited about the angle of it being a mystery because we're able to use the genre to communicate more about being young and the things that these characters are pursuing through the pursuit to find this missing girl," Rogers told Indiewire."[Search Party] being a mystery is a really refreshing way for us to communicate the things about youth that we want it to. Searching for yourself is a really big part of the show and the way that these characters are searching for a missing girl while they are lost is sort of... is really the premise of the show."

Aside from Shawkat, the cast also includes comedians John Early (Wet Hot American Summer: First Day of Camp) and Jeffery Self as boyfriends, and recently announced stars like Rosie Perez and Parker Posey.

Search Party made its debut this year at South by Southwest, and will premiere on TBS late 2016, until then check out the trailer below:
