Netflix today revealed the official trailer for the upcoming action-comedy series Obliterated created by Jon Hurwitz, Hayden Schlossberg, and Josh Heald (Cobra Kai creators). The series will premiere on November 30th with all 8 episodes. Netflix describes it as “if 24 and The Hangover hooked up and had a baby.”
Obliterated is a high octane action-comedy that tells the story of an elite special forces team who thwarts a deadly threat to Las Vegas. After their celebratory party, filled with booze, drugs and sex, the team discovers that the bomb they deactivated was a fake. The now intoxicated team has to fight through their impairments, overcome their personal issues, find the real bomb, and save the world.
The cast includes Shelley Hennig (Teen Wolf), Nick Zano (DC’s Legends of Tomorrow), C. Thomas Howell (SEAL Team), Kimi Rutledge (Half Sisters), Paola Lázaro (The Walking Dead), Terrence Terrell (B Positive), Alyson Gorske (Amy’s F**k It List), Eugene Kim (Donny’s Bar Mitzvah), Carl Lumbly (Alias), David Costabile (Billions), Lindsey Kraft (Grace and Frankie), Costa Ronin (The Americans), Tobias Jelinek (Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), and Minnie Mills (The Summer I Turned Pretty). Guest stars will include Lori Petty (A League of Their Own), Virginia Madsen (Designated Survivor), Clive Standen (Vikings), Ivan G’vera (Days of Our Lives), and Keston John (In The Dark).
“The best of the best from our armed forces and clandestine operations answer the call,” executive producer, director, and co-showrunner Josh Heald tells Tudum. “Even if you’re the so-called best of the best, you’re gonna be way up against it if called back into action with a system full of liquor and drugs. Our team deals with every conceivable self-imposed obstacle as a result of accidentally partying before the mission is over,” he also says.
“Like their characters, this cast is the best of the best. Each and every one of them can do it all,” director, executive producer, and co-showrunner Jon Hurwitz tells Tudum. “They can nail the comedy, the drama, and the action. They can play badass or vulnerable; sober or wasted; sexy or sloppy. And on this show, we ask them to do it all.”
