Some familiar faces from NBC’s past comedies are reunited tonight in a new series about the impending end of the world, “You, Me and the Apocalypse”.
After ten years on “The Office”, Jenna Fischer wanted a change.
“I was looking for adventure and this show is definitely adventure,” she says.
“You, Me and the Apocalypse” starts with her meek character, Rhonda, wrongfully imprisoned.
She’s later part of a prison break to see loved ones before doomsday where she’s forced to rely on a rough and tumble fellow escapee played by former “Will and Grace” co-star Megan Mullally.
Their on-the-run storyline is just one of several playing out around the world, including one with Rob Lowe as a bad boy priest.
The story lines eventually converge as the end of the world approaches.
