Adult Swim will premiere a new animated sketch series called Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio this month and it will feature a host of guest artists. As Pitchfork reports, forthcoming guest stars include Father John Misty, André 3000 and Lizzo.
Hear Father John Misty Rock Gently on ‘Real Love Baby’ »The show stars Broad City’s Ilana Glazer, Precious lead actress Gabourey Sidibe and Saturday Night Live alum Darrell Hammond, among others. Each episode will also feature a guest star and some will perform music during the show. The songs will be written by Neely. Father John Misty, André 3000 and Lizzo are slated to appear during its first season.
“This show for me is an opportunity to make a lot of music and have fun people sing my songs,” Neely said in a press release via Pitchfork.
As IndieWire points out, the first 10-minute episode was first shared on Vine last week, which was the first time the app featured a full-length video. Neely, who has worked on three other Adult Swim series (I am Baby Cakes, The Professor Brothers and China, Illinois), told IndieWire that most sketches are short – under a minute – and sharable. “There is no causality from bit to bit. It was made for television with the understanding that it would do really well online,” he said.
In other Adult Swim news, Run the Jewels, Against Me!, Flying Lotus and Vince Staples are among the artists featured in the sixth annual Adult Swim Singles series. A new free song will be released each Wednesday through November and they’re available via its website.
Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Slopio Peepio premieres on July 10th at 11:45 ET on Adult Swim. Watch the first teaser above and see the “Pre-Teen with Predator Head” sketch below.
