In the sleepy enclave of Garrity, Vt., neon-clad Joe has a mysterious past and a highly specialized skill set: hunting werewolves. When a rash of werewolf fatalities strikes the town, the sheriff's department needs help and enlists Neon Joe to help save the townspeople. He'll have to catch the murderous beast before the next full moon or face more attacks. Later, when he opens a tropical-themed bar to try to get away from his werewolf-hunting, Neon Joe is pulled back into the fray.
From the minds of Adult Swim veterans Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim, this anthology's tales might best be described as horrifying, insane or -- at least -- dark. The 15-minute episodes feature various guest stars. While its gallows humor is distinctly Tim and Eric, the presentation quality probably won't jibe with what their fans are used to; the guys' longest-running show, "Tim and Eric's Awesome Show, Great Job," had a low-quality, public-access feel to it, whereas "Bedtime Stories" has high production values.
Actor/comic Jon Glaser ("Parks and Recreation," "Girls") has an unmatched passion for gear. He loves it so much that it's the main focus of this hybrid comedy series that stars Glaser as himself. He is seen shopping for various gadgets, which he then wears, promotes, demonstrates and generally obsesses over. Ironically, however, it is this ever-growing infatuation that continually threatens to derail the show.
Adult Swim is never afraid to go beyond the boundaries of what most people consider good taste, so the not-necessarily-PC premise of this show shouldn't come as a shock to anyone. "Black Jesus" spotlights Jesus living in modern-day Compton, Calif., trying to spread love and kindness throughout his neighborhood on a daily basis. Mostly assisting in his mission is a small-but-loyal group of downtrodden followers. The live-action series was created by Aaron McGruder, who previously brought the animated favorite "The Boondocks" to Adult Swim.
Oscar-nominated actor John C. Reilly ("Chicago") portrays naive and socially awkward Dr. Steve Brule in this Adult Swim series that sees the doctor examining various parts of everyday life. As he discusses such ordinary topics as boats, animals and money, Brule reveals information about his personal life, some of which is shocking and disturbing. Brule is joined throughout the series by recurring characters, who offer the likes of movie reviews and news updates.
Comic Eric André hosts a late-night show that parodies low-budget public-access programs and brings the talk genre to another level -- not in a good way. It features interviews with celebrities -- some really are, and others are impersonators -- and what producers describe as "extreme real-life weirdos" interspersed with "deranged" man-on-the-street segments and just general chaos in the studio. Working with André is apathetic sidekick Hannibal Buress, who serves as the straight man to the hyperactive host.
Writer Brad Neely, whose credits include popular animated series "South Park," created this animated sketch-comedy series that is made up of short -- some lasting just a few seconds -- skits, films and songs. Each 15-minute episode includes voiceover work by a guest star, joining a cast that includes Neely, who describes the show as "lots and lots of little bits crammed into a show." If you're trying to find some meaning behind the show's seemingly nonsensical title, don't bother. Neely says it's "intentionally meaningless" and just a favorite collection of syllables among the show's crew.
This live-action comedy series shows that corporate life in Hell really isn't much different from what it is on Earth, with everyone trying to get promotions. Associate demon Gary is looking to climb up the corporate ladder of the underworld. To do so, he tries to capture souls on Earth. Along the way, Gary tries to help spread love for his boss by doing things like helping a high-school drama class make a musical that glorifies Satan and trying to convince a pro ballplayer to thank the Devil after every bunt single. The show was created by "Aqua Teen Hunger Force" writers Dave Willis and Casper Kelly.
"Jon" is a family man with a problem. He testified against the Russian mob, specifically the Mirminsky family, which results in him having to go into the witness-protection program along with his wife and teenage son. After living in a quiet suburb for a while, "Jon" accepts an offer to have his family star in a reality show (not the best idea for a family in witness protection), for which they move into a New York loft. In order to hide their identities from the viewers and, more importantly, the Mirminsky family, "Jon" and his family wear ski masks and have their voices surgically disguised.
This live-action sketch comedy series features members of Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, or Odd Future for short, a collective of rappers, artists and skateboarders. In addition to comedy sketches, the program features man-on-the-street segments, pranks and music from Odd Future. As is the case of most Adult Swim shows, this one is definitely geared toward adults and not intended for young eyes and ears.
