‘Wet Hot American Summer’ Team Making Series Best Described as ‘The Love Boat in Space’

According to THR, Michael Ian Black, Michael Showalter, Jonathan Stern, and David Wain, best known as the team behind cult favorite Wet Hot American Summer, are working on a new series for TBS called Moon Cruise. The show, which will star Michael Ian Black, is best described as “The Love Boat, but in space.”

The show will be a half hour, single camera comedy… and that’s literally everything we know about the series right now. I mean, it’s a great team behind it, but details are being kept tightly under wraps for now. I mean, with a title like Moon Cruise, I think it’s safe to say the fictional space cruise ship will fly by some moons? Maybe?

I mean, that’s not a lot to go on.

In any case, no matter what they do, I’ll always be internally comparing it to the classic SNL Star Trek: The Next Generation/Love Boat sketch from the ’90s when Patrick Stewart hosted. I mean, why wouldn’t I?


Trae Dorn

Trae is the tallest of the hosts, and he is certain it’s because he is the oldest. This is (at the very least) why he is the baldest. Trae co-founded Wisconsin’s longest running Anime convention No Brand Con and refuses to apologize for it... which he probably should. Trae also writes the webcomics UnCONventional and The Chronicles of Crosarth, which leads many to ask when the hell he has time to actually do anything anymore. He says he has time because he “does it all quite poorly.”
