Adult Swim is picking up the group’s 15-minute live-action series, Loiter Squad, which will feature sketches, man on the street segments, pranks and music from the group. Odd Future consists of Los Angeles rappers, artists and skateboarders, who will showcase their multi-faceted creativity into a Jackass-style program. In addition to Tyler, the group includes Earl Sweatshirt, Frank Ocean, MellowHype, Hodgy Beats, Domo Genesis, Mike G and The Jet Age of Tomorrow.
The show is actually being produced by Dickhouse Entertainment (aka Jackass masterminds Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine, and Spike Jonze).
