Greg Garcia’s “Guest Book” is filling up quite nicely.
The new 10-episode TBS comedy anthology series from the “My Name Is Earl” creator will premiere in August, with a cast that includes Kellie Martin as Officer Kimberly Leahy, who serves on the police force in the small mountain town of Mount Trace. Additionally, Charlie Robinson is Wilfrid, an easygoing, friendly gentleman who manages a group of mountain rental cottages with his wife, Emma, played by recurring guest star Aloma Wright.
Carly Jibson is Vivian, a tough, strong-willed woman who runs a bikini bar called Chubbys with her stepson Frank, played by Lou Wilson. Rounding out the first season cast in recurring roles will be Garret Dillahunt, Laura Bell Bundy and Eddie Steeples.
Guest stars already booked for “The Guest Book” include Danny Pudi, Jenna Fischer, Tommy Dewey, Lauren Lapkus, Michaela Watkins, Mary Lynn Rajskub, Michael Rapaport, Kate Micucci, Jaime Pressly, Stockard Channing, Andrew J. West, John Ortiz, David Zayas, Shannon Woodward, Margo Martindale and Stephnie Weir.
“The Guest Book” emerged from Greg Garcia’s habit of writing fictitious stories in the guest books of various rental cabins in an effort to freak out the next renters, per TBS. Now he is bringing some of those stories to life on screen centering on the vacation home Froggy Cottage and its visitors. While the house and cast of characters living in this small mountain town remain the same, each episode will feature a different set of vacationing guests.
Garcia’s new series is a co-production of CBS Television Studios and Turner’s Studio T. The showrunner is writing all 10 episodes himself, and executive producing alongside Alix Jaffe.
