Adult Swim Orders Animated Series ‘The Jellies!’ from Tyler, the Creator
Adult Swim just added a quarter-hour animated show to its lineup. Deadline reports that the network has given a series order to The Jellies! from Tyler, the Creator and Lionel Boyce, who created the show together and are also on the voice cast alongside Phil LaMarr, Blake Anderson, AJ Johnson, and Kevin Michael Richardson. The series centers on “a family of jellyfish, including their 16-year-old human son Cornell. When Cornell learns that he was adopted at birth, he is shocked by the news and spirals out of control as he tries to “find himself.” The result is he, his family and friends continue to end up in uncanny situations.” The Jellies! makes the third animated comedy recently ordered by Adult Swim following Myles Langlois’ Apollo Gauntlet and Bryan Wysol’s Hot Streets, which were both greenlit back in March.
The Jellies! will debut sometime in the summer; check out a promo below:
