Odd Future’s “Loiter Squad” TV Show Trailer Revealed

10_OddFutureReadingVF020911

Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All may be one of the most critically divisive Hip Hop acts of the past decade, but that hasn’t stopped them from finding an audience. Now, fresh off Tyler, the Creator’s recent VMA win, Adult Swim has announced that they have picked up a new TV series starring the Wolf Gang set to debut next year.

According to a recent press release, OFWGKTA’s “Loiter Squad” has been picked up by the late night cartoon network. Although details on what will actually appear on the 15 minute program are slim, previous reports indicate that the show will resemble “…a mixture of ‘Jackass’ and ‘Chappelle’s Show,’” featuring sketches, man-on-the street segments and pranks.

The “Jackass” connections don’t stop with the show’s description, however. Dickhouse Entertainment, the “Jackass”-founded production company comprised of Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine and “Otis” director Spike Jonze, will produce “Loiter Squad.” Tremaine and Adult Swim Nick Widenfield will also act as executive producers for the show.

“Loiter Squad” will invade homes March 25th.
