by AJ Adejare

Adult Swim just wrapped up their Upfront party, which had Miley Cyrus as the main performer.  Cyrus debuted her new track Tiger Dreams to the crowd as well as entertained them with more candid stories about herself.  Variety talked about the show and down below also included part of her new track:

This party wrapped up a week of Adult Swim trying to attract advertisers for their new shows and pilots.  Let’s talk about them.

The newest cartoon to enter the Adult Swim staple is TV Sucks.  From the creators of China, Il, this show is a 15 minute comedy sketch show made by Titmouse which will have the normal gamut of comedy sketch such as songs and shorts.  There are also a slew of specials including Robot Chicken DC Comics Special III: Friendship Is Magic that will come throughout the year.   On the pilot side we should expect over 10 new pilots throughout the 2015 year.  Titmouse clearly has a lot of the pilots on lock as they will have BALLMASTRZ 9669, Creataceous Caligula and Fisthead.  Stoopid Monkey under Stoopid Buddy Stoodios., the studio behind Robot Chicken, have their own pilots called OMG! Earth and Hot Streets is a stop motion comedy series.

Here is the concept for TV Sucks:

TV SUCKS –TV SUCKS is a new quarter-hour animated sketch show created by Brad Neely (China, IL) that features a collection of frenetic one-off bits, shorts, and songs, all filtered through Neely’s signature visual style. Beware however, as this show hates you. Neely and Daniel Weidenfeld serve as executive producers, Dave Newberg as co-executive producer, with Titmouse, Inc. producing.

The concept for the animated pilots for the series as well as live action can be seen here.
