Aaron McGruder is one busy man. The creator of the hit comic and animated series “The Boondocks” announced this year that he’s also working on a new show on Adult Swim called “Black Jesus.” Now comes news that there’s another show in the works, this one the “Hooligan Squad” about an American insurgency in Japanese-occupied San Francisco.
“With ‘The Boondocks’ and the upcoming “Black Jesus” series we consider Aaron very instrumental in the success of Adult Swim and this deal is the continuation of a great partnership,” said Mike Lazzo, executive vice president/creative director of Adult Swim.
For his part, McGruder noted that “it’s a rare thing to have a network home. Even more rare is a home that wants to see you grow and expand as a creator. Adult Swim is headed to new horizons and I’m happy to be along for the ride.”
Earlier this year there was some talk of trouble between McGruder and the network after it was announced that he wouldn’t be involved in the last season of his signature show “The Boondocks.” But it looks like all is well. Get ready to laugh.
