TBS Orders 10 Episodes of Action Drama 'Obliterated' from 'Cobra Kai' Team

TBS has today given a series order to the original action drama series Obliterated from Cobra Kai creators Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg and Josh Heald. The first season will produce 10 hourlong episodes.

The dramedy focused on an elite special forces team tracking a deadly terrorist network, hell bent on blowing up Las Vegas. After their raging end-of-mission party filled with alcohol and drug-fueled debauchery, the team discovers the bomb they deactivated was a decoy. With the clock ticking, the intoxicated team has to fight through their impairments, overcome their personal issues, deactivate the bomb, and save the world.

Hurwitz, Schlossberg and Heald are writing and executive producing the series. Dina Hillier will co-executive produce. Sony Pictures Television and Counterbalance Entertainment will produce.

"As TBS' brand continues to evolve, our primary focus of late has been for us to find dramas that are as much fun as they are high stakes," said Brett Weitz, General Manager of TBS, TNT and TruTV. "We've worked with Josh in the past and tried to buy Cobra Kai, so letting this series get away from us just wasn't an option. This incredible team brings heart and absurdity to a situation as serious as saving the world, which makes Obliterated a perfect fit for TBS."

"We could not be more excited to be making Obliterated with our friends at Sony and TBS, who have embraced our concept and empowered us to push the envelope on how funny, action-packed, heartfelt, and totally badass a one-hour show can be," added Hurwitz, Schlossberg and Heald.
