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

Development and productionEdit

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]
