BURBANK, CA - January 21, 2021 - TNT, TBS and truTV unveil March and April premiere dates for three new and two returning shows. The programming slate includes TBS' new single-camera comedy "Chad" (April 6) and returning top-rated animated comedy "American Dad!" (April 19). Two new series join truTV's line-up, including limited series "Double Cross with Blake Griffin" (March 19-20) and magic prank show "Big Trick Energy" (April 15). Rounding out April, as previously announced, the "27th Annual Screen Actors Guild Awards(R)" will be simulcast on April 4 on both TNT and TBS.

Premiere dates and series descriptions for TNT, TBS and truTV's March and April slate include:

TBS

CHAD - Tuesdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT beginning April 6

"Chad," a single-camera comedy, follows a 14-year-old pubescent Persian boy (Nasim Pedrad) as he navigates his first year of high school on a mission to become popular. Chad's friendships and sanity are pushed to the limits as he uses every tactic at his disposal to befriend the cool kids, while enduring his mother's new dating life and reconciling with his cultural identity. Pedrad, who first made her mark on "Saturday Night Live," is also creator, writer, executive producer and showrunner on "Chad."

AMERICAN DAD! - Mondays at 10 p.m. ET/PT beginning April 19

"American Dad!" centers on super patriotic CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, VA. Stan applies the same drastic measures used in his job at the CIA to his home life, where Stan's blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that makes her blind to his unabashed arrogance. His left-wing activist daughter Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), however, doesn't let him off so easily - and knows just how to push her father's buttons. Hayley's brother is the geeky-yet-confident Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex. The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), a sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier.

"Double Cross with Blake Griffin" serves up an incredibly devious twist as it offers a service to those who are all too often the victims of a prank. Each week, Griffin conspires with people who are tired of being the victim to help them get some sweet revenge on their unsuspecting prankster - by pulling off the ultimate double cross!

BIG TRICK ENERGY - Thursdays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT beginning April 22

Best friends for more than 10 years, master magicians and mischievous daredevils Chris Ramsay, Eric Leclerc, Wes Barker and Alex Boyer venture into the real world to both shock and awe unsuspecting spectators - and each other - with their unique brand of extreme, provocative, mind-blowing magic.
