Adult Swim Upfront: May 15, 2014

 

Adult Swim didn’t take itself too seriously (surprise!) at a lively, packed Upfront party at NYC’s Terminal 5. The night was all about fun – Triumph the Insult Comedy Dog gave a video introduction that set the tone, then hip hop duo Outkast rocked the house in a rare intimate club show. Four floors were set up with activities including a funhouse, a picture area with props and an adult “baby” in a crib.

 

Programming was announced ahead of the event. Original series include a comedy created by Robert Smigel (SNL, Conan) starring Jack McBrayer (30 Rock) and the aforementioned Triumph the Insult Dog, and pilots Dream Corp LLC, about a questionable experimental treatment facility, Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, the tale of a neon-clad man with a special skill set, and a comedy inspired by WorldStarHipHop.com, covering hip hop culture.

 

Premiering this summer and fall are Mike Tyson Mysteries, showing the heavyweight champ as crime fighter; Black Jesus, with the Son of God spreading love in present-day Compton, CA; Mr. Pickles, about a deviant border collie; anthology series  Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories and The Venture Bros. Special, an hour-long adventure “that will change the Ventureverse as we know it forever.”
