Odd Future Show Coming to Adult Swim in 2012
Adult Swim has announced that it has picked up the series Loiter Squad, a 15-minute live-action show that features sketches, man on the street segments, pranks and, of course, music from Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All. The program is set to air in 2012.
Loiter Squad is being produced by Dickhouse Entertainment, the Hollywood production partnership of Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine and Spike Jonze that’s created shows like Jackass, Rob & Big and Rob Dyrdek’s Fantasy Factory, among others. Tremaine will serve as executive producer alongside Shanna Zablow, Dimitry Elyashkevich and Lance Bangs, also from Dickhouse.
The announcement, which comes on the heels of Tyler, the Creator’s “Best New Artist” snag at the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, is a natural progression for OFWGKTA as a whole, being that the Los Angeles collective has been garnering major mainstream attention as of late; Tyler, The Creator’s Goblin LP has sold more than 100,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan, and his “Yonkers” video has been viewed more than 22 million times, according to a press release.—Mariel Concepcion
