New 2D-animated sketch comedy series produced by Titmouse, ‘Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio,’ is the first full episode to launch on the short-form video platform.
In a first for both Adult Swim and Vine, the cable network has launched the first full episode of Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio online on the short video sharing platform:
Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio is a new quarter-hour animated sketch show created by Neely that features a collection of frenetic one-off bits, shorts, and songs, all filtered through Neely’s signature visual style. Beware, however, as this show reportedly hates you.
Produced by Titmouse, Inc., Neely and Daniel Weidenfeld serve as executive producers and Dave Newberg as co-executive producer. The new series premieres Sunday, July 10 at 11:45 p.m.
Q: What does Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio mean, is there any sort of inspiration for it?
A: It’s intentionally meaningless. We tried some titles that had meaning. This one just made us laugh – it was our favorite collection of syllables.
Q: Can you tell us a little bit about the show? What can people expect?
A: They should expect endless variety. Lots and lots of little bits crammed into a show. Lots of music. We have a dedicated cast for the whole season. There’s myself, there’s Ilana Glazer, Affion Crockett, Darrell Hammond and Gabourey Sidibe.
A: We have one guest star per episode. We have Father John Misty, Lizzo, Jeffrey Tambor, Chelsea Peretti, Christine Shaw, Mary Elizabeth Winstead and Andre 3000.
Q: Are there any favorite recurring characters?
A: Fruit Blood! It’s a band. They show up in a few, six or seven, episodes I guess. They do a lot of songs in a cellar. They wear colorful clothes. Some mix of bondage plus Mardi Gras sort of aesthetic, you know?
Q: How big of a role does music play in the series outside of Fruit Blood?
A: I made about a hundred songs for the show. About 60-70 made it into the 10 episodes. It’s a huge part of the show. This show for me is an opportunity to make a lot of music and have fun people sing my songs.
Q: So it’s not just you singing, cast members jump in as well?
A: Yes, and guest stars. Father John Misty sings songs.
Q: When does the show air?
A: Let me check my phone. Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio premieres Sunday, July 10 at 12:15 a.m. on Adult Swim. That’s what they’re tellin’ me.
Q: Would that be Monday, technically? July 10? It was 12:15 a.m.? They’re giving us a lot of mixed messages here. So you wake up on Sunday and you don’t go to sleep until you watch the show.
A: You can’t wake up if you don’t go to sleep.
