Five New Series Get in Adult Swim Schedule
SAUL OF THE MOLE PEOPLE Saul is an American explorer who proudly plants his flag deep inside the Earths core. While there, he encounters the Mole People, who do not understand his ways. Created by Craig Lewis, who has written for such Cartoon Network original series as FOSTERS HOME FOR IMAGINARY FRIENDS and THE GRIM ADVENTURES OF BILLY & MANDY, the show features live actors and costumed characters in a style reminiscent of series like LAND OF THE LOST and THE BANANA SPLITS. The pilot will premiere in October.
LUCY: DAUGHTER OF THE DEVIL Lucy is a young girl who just moved to San Francisco. Her father, who happens to be Satan, is understandably concerned, particularly after she starts dating a guy named Jesus (pronounced in the Spanish manner). LUCY: DAUGHTER OF THE DEVIL, created using CGI animation and set for an October premiere, comes from Loren Bouchard, producer of HOME MOVIES and DR. KATZ: PROFESSIONAL THERAPIST. It stars Jon Benjamin (the voice of Coach McGuirk on HOME MOVIES) as the Devil.
MINORI-TEAM A team of superheroes, composed exclusively of members of minority groups, joins forces to fight against discrimination. Jewcano, Fasto, Dr. Wang, El Jeffe and Quickstop use the power of racial stereotypes to right societal wrongs, one slur at a time. This pilot will air in October and was created by Alex de la Pena, Todd Peters and Peter Gerardi.
New episodes of the Emmy-winning series, FAMILY GUY, from McFarlane will return to Adult Swim in June under a unique agreement between Adult Swim and Fox Broadcasting Co. FOX will air new episodes of the once-canceled series in primetime; later that week, replays will appear during late night on Adult Swim.
TOM GOES TO THE MAYOR, an Adult Swim original series, created by Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, will return with eight new episodes about provincial thinking and over-exuberant civic pride on April 17.
HARVEY BIRDMAN, ATTORNEY AT LAW returns for a new season on July 24.
