‘Boondocks’ Creator Aaron McGruder to Create New Pilot ‘Hooligan Squad’ for Adult Swim
Aaron McGruder, creator of the comic strip-turned-Peabody Award-winning Adult Swim series The Boondocks, has signed a new first-look deal with Adult Swim to create and develop new shows for the cable network. His first project under the deal is a live-action adventure pilot he’s writing called Hooligan Squad that is set in the future in Japanese-occupied San Francisco, following an American insurgency. McGruder has another live action Adult Swim show he created, Black Jesus, which is set to start airing this August. The Boondocks ended its four-season run on Adult Swim earlier this summer, with McGruder having left the show after its third season.
