With all of the major TV network upfronts happening over the past few days, it’s easy to overlook the news concerning their plucky basic cable brethren. Like say, Adult Swim. The Live Feed reports that among the network’s eight new projects that are currently in development is an animated series that’s based on the Harold & Kumar movies, with both John Cho and Kal Penn on board to voice, and Jon Hurwitz and Hayden Schlossberg, who wrote A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas, penning the script.
Also in the works, a pilot from Community creator Dan Harmon for an animated show called Rick & Morty that will follow a “genius inventor grandfather and his less than genius grandson, and the journeys in life they share.” Is it just us, or can you also hear stoners and comedy geeks everywhere wildly rejoicing? Or maybe that’s just what it sounds like when Chevy Chase weeps.
