Adults everywhere love to watch Adult Swim on Cartoon Network, because of their mature, sophisticated programming that is designed by adults, for adults. And now the programming block is unveiling three new mature series and several projects, blurring the line between entertainment and adulthood. Here’s what they are:
“‘The Heart, She Holler’ – a new live-action soap opera about folk who ain’t never used soap or seen an opera. It’s a satire on the emotional Hee-Hawification of America, set in a town so inbred, the folks have become almost supernaturally wrong. The series is produced by PFFR, and stars Patton Oswalt and Heather Lawless.”
‘China, IL’ – Frank and Steve Smith ar brothers who teach in the history department of a state university in China, Illinois. They also happen to be legends in their own minds who will often sacrifice facts, lessons and syllabi for the sake of being awesome.
‘Tight Bros’ – a new animated comedy that follows two moronic “clergybros” who are on a quest for fat beats, hot chicks and tricked out cell phones. Vince and Aaron were called by God to spread a holy message: one of peace, love and tearin’ up the club. By day the two sell religious kitsch at a kiosk in Viceroy Del Sol mall. By night they hunt for babes, but only with mega tans and super smooth waxes in place.
The really interesting announcements though are the pilots that have been placed in development. There’s the previously announced pilot from Bob Odenkirk entitled “Regal Productions,” plus untitled projects from “Community” creator Dan Harmon and hip-hop collective Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. Also “The Dummiez” from Nick Cannon, an untitled Major Lazer project, and “Rolling With Dad,” an animated sitcom from Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg. It’s going to be a great year for lovers of adult-oriented TV!
