After putting murderous ventriloquists, bakers and painters behind bars in the season, Angie Tribeca is ready to untangle all new webs of deceit in the second season.
Rashida Jones, Hayes MacArthur, Jere Burns, Deon Cole, Andree Vermeulen and Jagger the German Shepherd return as the starring cast.
Angie Tribeca follows a squad of committed LAPD detectives who investigate the most serious cases. At the centre is Angie Tribeca, a lone-wolf detective played by Rashida Jones. Hayes MacArthur is her partner, Jay Geils. Jere Burns plays the squad's apoplectic lieutenant.
Helping solve each complex case are detective Danny Tanner, played by Deon Cole; Dr. Monica Scholls, the brilliant, bespectacled medical examiner played by Andree Vermeulen; and detective David Hoffman, Tanner's K9 German Shepard partner played by Jagger.
In the second season, Angie and the detectives of the LAPD investigate the murder of a sushi chef, the death of the "bad boy" in a boy band who gets decapitated by a t-shirt cannon and a band of drug-dealing lifeguards.
In addition, they will tackle a difficult case with the help of a romance novelist.
As in the first season, Season 2 features a parade of recognisable guest stars including James Franco, Heather Graham, Mary McCormack, Noah Wyle, Maya Rudolph, Eriq La Salle, Danny Pudi, Busy Philipps, Kevin Pollak, Rhys Darby, Ed Begley Jr., Joe Jonas, Joey McIntyre and others.
In addition, Alfred Molina continues filling the community service requirements of his probation by once again playing the recurring role of Dr. Edelweiss.
Angie Tribeca is the brainchild of Steve and Nancy Carell, who executive-produce the series through their production company Carousel Television.
