Odd Future series 'Loiter Squad' picked up by Adult Swim
The crazy, typically unpredictable boys of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All are making the move to television with a live-action series that has been picked up by Adult Swim, the network announced Thursday.
“Loiter Squad,” a 15-minute series that will feature sketches, man on the street segments, pranks and, naturally, music from the buzzy L.A.-based hip-hop collective, will recall the style of MTV's hit series “Jackass.”
The show is being produced by the creative minds of “Jackass," Dickhouse Entertainment. Dickhouse, a production team consisting of "Jackass" stars Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine and director Spike Jonze, is also responsible for “Nitro Circus,” “Rob & Big,” “Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory” and “Wildboyz." Tremaine and Adult Swim's Nick Weidenfeld will serve as executive producers.
“Loiter Squad” is pegged for an early 2012 premiere.
