Craig Robinson and Adam Scott hunt the paranormal in Ghosted trailer

Unexplained things are happening in the new trailer for the upcoming Fox comedy Ghosted. The series stars Adam Scott and Craig Robinson as two men paired up to work for the Bureau Underground, a secret organization investigating paranormal cases. Together, the two must look into "unexplained" activity in Los Angeles as they attempt to uncover the truth and save humanity.

The trailer begins with Robinson's character, Leroy Wright, a skeptical former missing persons detective, before immediately contrasting him with Scott's Max Jennifer, a clerk who is willing to tell just about anyone that his wife was abducted by aliens. Both are grabbed by a mysterious man named Barry (Adeel Akhtar), who throws them in the back of a van before explaining that he works for the Bureau Underground, which investigates "the paranormal and anything outside the scientific realm."

The duo then meet the Bureau's leader Captain Ava Lafrey (Ally Walker), who quickly begins to explain to them that the fate of the entire planet may rest in their hands– before she gets a phone call, of course. She begins to send the duo out on cases, with the pair discovering that everything that's happening leads back to a nearby nuclear power plant. However, it will likely be a while before they are able to fully uncover the truth, as hijinks begin to ensue pretty much immediately. They're complicated even further when a weird pink light starts to attack them, and things get even stranger when Leroy discovers a man who can detach his (still screaming) head.

The script for the X-Files inspired Ghosted comes from That Awkward Moment's Tom Gormican, with the pilot directed by Man Seeking Woman's Jonathan Krisel. Ghosted is one of a number of exciting series coming up for Fox next season, with the network also pushing a Marvel mutant drama called The Gifted and a Seth McFarlane-led Star Trek parody called The Orville. Ghosted will join the network's Sunday night comedy block, airing after The Simpsons at 8:30 p.m.; no official premiere date has been set yet. While we go to an independent coffee house to talk out or feelings about the upcoming series, see some TV shows that are better if you skip the first season.
