Search Party (TV show) cast members Alia Shawkat and John Reynolds
"Search Party" (TV show) is a dark comedy series on TBS that is about a group of four self-absorbed 20-somethings who come together when a former college acquaintance mysteriously disappears. The cast includes Alia Shawkat ("Arrested Development"), John Early, John Reynolds and Meredith Hagner.

The series centers on Dory (Shawkat), a fragile, frustrated, life-long doormat who's not particularly proud of her impact on the world, especially since her greatest accomplishment to date is organizing
clothes to be donated to Goodwill for her wealthy employer. Dory feels stuck in a stale and disconnected relationship with her boyfriend, Drew (Reynolds), a kind of clueless, complacent, spoon-fed doofus who just really loves Christmas. She also feels removed from her closest friends, Elliott (Early), a self-diagnosed narcissist who loves adding job titles to his designer-stylist-curator multi-hyphenate lifestyle, and Portia (Hagner), an actress always struggling to balance the challenging demands of chronic insecurity and pathological self-absorption.

The series opens with Dory learning that Chantal, a girl she barely knew in college, has gone missing. Despite having almost no personal connection to her, Dory becomes fixated on the mystery. Dory, Drew, Elliott, and Portia are not crime solvers. They value brunch, parties, and their own loud opinions. So when Dory drags them into a bumbling, perilous pursuit to find the missing girl, they soon learn the meaning of real danger and become entangled in a sinister plot that is more than their privileged Brooklyn lifestyles ever bargained for.

"Search Party" is produced for TBS by Jax Media. The pilot was written and directed by Sarah-Violet Bliss and Charles Rogers and overseen by Michael Showalter ("Hello," "My Name Is Doris," "Wet Hot American Summer"). Tony Hernandez ("Broad City," "Inside Amy Schumer," "Louie") and Lilly Burns ("Broad City," "Difficult People," "Younger") serve as executive producers, alongside Showalter, Rogers and Bliss.
