Adult Swim veteran Tim Heidecker ("Tim and Eric Awesome Show") created and stars in this spoof of action films.

This time around, the agents are on a plane that is controlled by terrorists who are aiming it at Mount Rushmore.
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.
From the co-creators of "Sealab 2021," this tale revolves around a super villain named Killface and his struggle to destroy the world -- but he finds that global destruction is hard work.

Xander's superhero alias, Awesome X, puts on a good face to make sure his action figure line of toys stays in business.
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.
Adult Swim describes "The Heart, She Holler" as a "live-action soap opera about folk who ain't never used soap or seen an opera." Specifically, it's set in Heartshe Holler, a town with such a long history of inbreeding that its residents aren't, shall we say, normal. When Hurlan Heartshe -- the secret, long-hidden son of the Heartshe dynasty -- returns to run the town, a conflict ensues with his sisters, Hurshe and Hambrosia, who are trying to take over the town themselves.
