The Detour (TBS) -- Series Thread -- S: Natalie Zea, Jason Jones



TBS, a division of Turner, is getting ready to hit the road again with the Parker family and all their obvious dysfunction. The network has ordered a 13-episode second season of the series several days before the show's official launch. Created, written and executive-produced by Jason Jones and Samantha Bee, The Detour is an often too honest look at the family dynamic and the chaos that can erupt from not being honest with the ones we love. Starring Jones, Natalie Zea, Ashley Gerasimovich and Liam Carroll, the series is set to debut on TBS Monday, April 11, at 9/8c. "I'm very excited to be going back to making my favorite show not yet on TV and look forward to making outrageous demands in my rider for the second season," said Jones. "Jason and Sam's vision and execution of the first season was original and unexpected at every ridiculous turn," said Brett Weitz, executive vice president of original programming for TBS. "Having Jason as Executive Producer, Director and Star really brought a definition to the voice of the characters and a realism to this family."

PRINCIPAL CAST INFORMATION:
Ashley Gerasimovich as Delilah
Daniella Pineda as Vanessa
Jason Jones as Nate
Liam Carroll as Jared
Natalie Zea as Robin

CREW INFORMATION:
Jason Jones as CRTR/EP
Samantha Bee as CRTR/EP
Steve Pink as DIR (Pilot)


10 episode first season. Already renewed for a second.

Two episodes premiere tonight, 4/11/16.

I would eat a mile of Natalie Zea's shit just to see where it came out of.


... and that guy is a bargain basement Ed Helms.

Would you do that in reality or are you just trying to say that you find her really attractive? I don't get it whenever I see a guy making a gross out proclamation like this about a female. Do women say stuff like this about guys? That being said, she is hot and will be the reason for me to give this show a shot.

It seems this has potential.

I've been burned before though.

Re: The Detour (TBS) -- Series Thread -- S: Natalie Zea, Jason Jones

saw the first ep. it was like the Vacation reboot. crass and really not funny. there is zero chemistry between Zea and Jones. it was a waste and i was looking forward to this one. will give the 2nd ep a chance, but not sure about this one...

I liked both eps. The interaction with the kids was the best part.

I only watched the first episode so far, but I'm not feeling it. Jason Jones and Natalie Zea had zero chemistry together. It seems like yet another "dorky husband with hot wife" sitcom trope. Maybe she is just miscast here. It seems like the show would be much better with Samantha Bee as the wife.

I'll watch the second episode before making up my mind but I was disappointed.

It was funny but I think they tried too hard as well. It's like they were taking Modern Family to a whole new level.

We have Sunny in Philly for that level already.

Maybe looking at Natalie Zea just puts me in a good mood, but I found this pretty funny. I laughed out loud multiple times.

She does have a tendency to put a man in a god mood.

I noticed I said God... Leaving it.

I watched it last night and thought it was ok. The end scene hooked me in for the season.

I laughed at both episodes more than I've laughed at any show since... shit, I can't even remember.

I'm in!

...and Zea does not disappoint.

3rd episode doesn't disappoint. This is spectacular. The kid who plays the daughter is really good.

Wow, this show is just not stop hilarity. The conquistador restaurant was epic.

Episodes 1 and 2 had me rolling.
I didn't find Episode 3 funny at all.
Thankfully this latest episode completely redeemed itself. Fucking hilarious.

I've been pretty "meh" about this show - it felt like the recent Vacation remake, but slightly better... which still isn't saying much. But all the scenes at Conquistadors were some of the funniest TV I've seen in a while. And yeah, the daughter's a good foil to the parents.

OMG, I just started watching this off the DVR. Fucking hilarious.

I was when the parents were explaining sex to their kids in episode 2. Surprised at how crude this is.

It does remind me a little of the Vacation update.

What a fantastic bed and breakfast. Hot Russian, the "panic" room, the "bear" fight.

"I have a great product." God damn right you do.

I like that the family was wearing "Conquistadors" t-shirts.

Natalie Zea in the sexy slip

at the bear fight.

And who the fuck takes a dump while brushing their teeth at the same time and spitting in the bowl? That was just gross.

The hot Russian chick was nice to look at, but damn that was a pretty terrible fake accent

This show is phenomenal. The different versions of their relationship was amazing.
