Adult Swim is developing an animated project based on the Harold & Kumar movies. The project, which currently goes under the name Untitled Animated Harold & Kumar Project, according to a report by The Wrap, is being produced by Lionsgate.
The network has also given the go-ahead to a pilot from Community creator Dan Harmon. Titled Rick & Morty, the half-hour project follows a "genius inventor grandfather and his less than genius grandson, and the journeys in life they share."
Other pilots given the nod by Adult Swim include Colonel Wallace, about an eccentric Southern fried-chicken magnate; Coffin Dodgers, which follows the curmudgeonly residents of a suburban retirement home who "get into Animal House-style trouble"; Green Bench: The American Day Dream, about a group of friends with nebulous business plans; Freestyle Love Supreme, which centers on a bunch of rapping I.T. specialists; King Star King, about "a modern day he-man who's half-warrior, half-idiot"; and Rolling With Dad, from Seth Grahame-Smith of Pride and Prejudice and Zombies and The Hard Times of RJ Berger’s David Katzenberg. Rolling With Dad follows a brilliant disabled man as he struggles to deal with his much less intelligent family.
