Adult Swim Greenlights Two New Action-Packed Animated Series

Mondo’s ‘Apollo Gauntlet’ and Stoopid Buddy’s ‘Hot Streets’ set to debut in 2017.

‘Apollo Gauntlet’

Adult Swim has announced two action-packed new animated series that will premiere later this year, with Apollo Gauntlet out this summer, followed by Hot Streets in the fall.

Both series are produced by two dynamic studios. Hot Streets hails from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the team behind Robot Chicken, while Apollo Gauntlet comes from MONDO's animation studio, Six Point Harness, and Mosaic.

Set in a futuristic medieval society, the quarter-hour animated adventure comedy series Apollo Gauntlet is created by independent Canadian animator Myles Langlois, who brings an '80s Saturday-morning cartoon vibe to the series. On Earth, Paul Cassidy is just another cop, but when the evil Dr. Benign transports him to another world, he becomes a new kind of hero. With the help of a magical suit and a set of talking gauntlets, he’s able to fight crime exactly the way he wants...and he’ll do it as Apollo Gauntlet! 

First-time animated series creator Brian Wysol, a writer on Rick and Morty and Robot Chicken, brings the quarter-hour animated science fiction adventure series Hot Streets to screen. FBI Agent Mark Branski, his partner, his niece, and her dog, investigate supernatural phenomena. Produced by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, Seth Green, Matt Senreich, John Harvatine IV, and Eric Towner (Robot Chicken), Justin Roiland (Rick and Morty) and Wysol are serving as executive producers.
