Ghosted (FOX) – Premieres 1st October
Sci-fi comedy where after an agent for the Underground Bureau is abducted, his last communication urges them to recruit two civilians to work on his disappearance. Max, a former Stanford professor who worked on the multiverse theory and claims his wife was abducted by aliens, and Leroy, a mall cop who lost his job at the LAPD after his partner was killed.
Together Max and Leroy are challenged by the Bureau for a one off mission to track down and bring back the missing agent, and in return they get their old jobs back.
This leads to the pair finding the agent but witness him being transported onto a UFO. When reporting their findings they decide to stay on at the agency to uncover what really is going on, and find out that the bureau is monitoring a group of former abductees that includes Maxs wife.
As comedy most of the jokes miss the mark, and it’s a bit of a slog to get though.
