TBS to launch Rashida Jones comedy with a 10-episode blast

NEW YORK (AP) — The TBS comedy "Angie Tribeca" is getting a launch even NASA might envy.

Starring Rashida Jones, the zany police procedural will let viewers binge-watch its entire first season by airing all 10 half-hour episodes from start to finish not once, but five times in a row, commercial-free. This 25-hour marathon begins Sunday, Jan. 17.

Then on Monday, Jan. 25, TBS will begin rolling out what it calls the series' "second" season — 10 more half-hours that will air weekly.

The series follows a squad of LAPD detectives who investigate cases ranging from the murder of a ventriloquist to a rash of baker suicides.

Jones ("Parks and Recreation") plays Detective Angie Tribeca, with Jere Burns ("Justified," ''Breaking Bad") as her harried captain. The series is produced by Steve and Nancy Carell.
