2 Broke Girls is distributed by Warner Bros. Domestic Television and is set to join the TBS lineup in 2015.
“When 2 Broke Girls premiered last fall, it immediately found its audience and appeared to us to be a perfect fit for TBS,” said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies).
“Successful cable networks have built their programming slates with a strategic mix of acquired proven off-net series along with compelling original programming,” said Ken Werner, president, Warner Bros. Domestic Television Distribution. “We are thrilled that 2 Broke Girls will have the opportunity to drive viewers to TBS in a similar way that The Big Bang Theory has, becoming a staple of their comedy line-up.”
2 Broke Girls stars Kat Dennings, Beth Behrs, Garrett Morris, comedian Jonathan Kite and Matthew Moy.
2 Broke Girls will return for its second season this fall on CBS. The series is produced by Bonanza Productions Inc. in association with MPK Productions and Warner Bros. Television.
