Rhys Darby's new American comedy show has been revealed as a comedic take on plane crash survival drama Lost.

Wrecked stars the Kiwi comedian as Steve, a "good-natured guy" who travels everywhere with a giant dog called Brimlow, reports Deadline.

The TBS single-camera show is described as "Lost meets It's Always Sunny In Philadelphia" and follows a group of plane crash survivors forced to live together on a remote island.

Along with Darby, other stars include Jessica Lowe, Zach Cregger, Ginger Gonzaga, Brooke Dillman and Asif Ali, Deadline reports.


Darby was last seen playing a werewolf in Taika Waititi's vampire mockumentary What We Do in the Shadows, and in his own TV show Short Poppies.

He's had a number of guest spots on other TV shows, including Modern Family, Hot in Cleveland and How I Met Your Mother.
