Talking to Vernon Chatman and John Lee About Season 2 of 'The Heart, She Holler'

Season 2 of The Heart, She Holler, a Southern gothic melodrama steeped in incest, gore and absurdity, has been two years in the making: Adult Swim greenlit another season right after the live-action show’s initial six-episode run in 2011, but showrunners Vernon Chatman and John Lee (Xavier: Renegade Angel, Wonder Showzen, and the 2002 Snoop Dogg sketch show Doggy Fizzle Televizzle) were tied up in other projects. Plus, Chatman and Lee pointed out, they needed time to “incubate, gestate and barrel-age the season in [their] mindwombs.”

The Heart, She Holler chronicles the ongoing struggle of shamelessly slutty Hurshe (Amy Sedaris) and telekinetically inclined Hambrosia (Heather Lawless) to [...]

Inside the Inbred Horror Comedy of 'The Heart, She Holler'

“Anything can happen,” says Alyson Levy on the Brooklyn set of the Adult Swim show she produces, The Heart, She Holler. “People can come back from the dead or, you know, maybe they weren't dead. We don't know. There's no reality to it. It's just the world unto this that has its own rules."

Tonight sees the return of grotesque soap opera-inspired live action comedy, which follows the debaucherous exploits of the inbred hillbilly family The Heartshes. Season one began with the emergence of Hurlan Heartshe (Patton Oswalt) from the cave he’s lived in all his life, following the death of his father (Jonathan Hadary). Hurlan is due to take [...]

Talking to Vernon Chatman About 'Wonder Showzen,' His Standup Beginnings, and His New Book 'Mindsploitation'

If there’s a comedy equivalent of Rick Rubin, it’s Vernon Chatman.

Just as Rubin has become known for producing some of the music industry’s most seminal albums, Chatman has become known as a go-to behind-the-scenes guy for some of television’s most critically-acclaimed comedies. The list of shows he’s written for and produced includes The Chris Rock Show, Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Louie, and South Park. He’s also a founding member of PFFR, the production company behind Adult Swim’s Delocated and the hilariously demented Xavier: Renegade Angel, as well as MTV’s Wonder Showzen, which he co-created.

As gonzo as some of his PFFR shows are, they are nothing compared to [...]
