TV Land's 'Nobodies' Moves to Paramount for Season 2

After airing its first season on TV Land earlier this year, original comedy series Nobodies is moving to Paramount Network for its second season. The 12-episode season will debut on the new cable channel in the spring of 2018.

The comedy was created by and stars Hugh Davidson, Larry Dorf and Rachel Ramras as fictionalized versions of themselves who watched their sketch comedy friends go on to star in blockbuster comedies and win Oscars while they toiled away in Hollywood. Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone executive produce the series and have made several guest appearances.

The 10-episode first season aired on TV Land starting in March 2017. It averaged around 400,000 total viewers when factoring in three days of DVR usage. It was renewed for a 12-episode second season before the first debuted.

Today's news marks the third time a series originally set for TV Land has moved to Paramount Network. Spike will rebrand to Paramount starting on January 18, 2018. The move is a part to boost the portfolio of Viacom in cable packages. New series American Woman and Heathers were original suppose to air on TV Land but were delayed and moved to Paramount with each debuting sometime in 2018 as part of the cable network's inaugural programming slate.

The move means that TV Land's original lineup only includes returning comedies Younger and Teachers. Both shows have been renewed for additional seasons, while no decision has been made about the future of Lopez. Meanwhile, there are no new shows currently set to debut on the channel.
