Adult Swim Premieres Brian Huskey’s Mr. Neighbor’s House, and Two Very Intriguing Pilots (One from Rob Corddry and the Other Starring Jason Alexander) Tonight
Mr. Neighbor’s House premieres at midnight followed by the pilot Hindenburg Explodes from Rob Corddry at 12:30AM. Then, Adam Lustick’s pilot The Mark Lembeck Technique starring Jason Alexander closes out the hour at 12:45AM.
Mr. Neighbor’s House looks to be twisted parody of Mister Rogers Neighborhood, The Mark Lembeck Technique, as seen in this promo, follows a really off-kilter therapist played by a frail voiced Jason Alexander. Corddry reimagines the events on a certain infamous dirigible leading up to the crash of the Hindenburg in Hindenburg Explodes.
All in all, it’s an evening of alternative realities, Adult Swim style, and we’re on board for that.
Get a Look at Adult Swim’s Twisted Parody of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood, “Mr. Neighbor’s House”
If you’ve been missing Childrens Hospital, you’ve got something to look forward to this week.
Brian Huskey, Jason Mantzoukas, Rob Corddry, Nick Kroll, Jon Daly, Steve Agee, and Jesse Falcon all teamed up to make a live action kid’s show that takes Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood and makes it go on a really bad drug trip of sorts. Many of them last worked together on the award winning Adult Swim dark comedy Childrens Hospital making this project one you might want to check out.
Here’s a promo for Mr. Neighbor’s House. It premieres on Friday, December 2nd at midnight and goes for a full half hour as opposed to 15 minutes.
Take a Gander at Adult Swim’s Exciting New Slate of Series, Specials, Pilots, Call-In Live Streams, Etc.
Looks like Adult Swim is going to continue to stay ahead of the curb.
Not only do they have an exciting crop of original series, specials, and pilots here, but they have a bunch of daily/weekly events that are scheduled like linear TV series, but will only be only live streaming online, then archived afterwards. Apparently, the success of sports show parody FishCenter has paved the way for more real time, interactive programming/content from Adult Swim.
Here’s what they’ve got going right at the moment:
-A Robot Chicken: The Walking Dead Special
–Montana James-frequent Adult Swim informercial collaborators Nick Corirossi and Charles Ingram that is most likely an absurdist take on Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade.
–Mr. Neighbor’s House–Brian Huskey plays a rage-filled version of Mr. Rogers-esque host.
–Brett Gelman’s Dinner in America–Brett Gelman and Jason Woliner’s latest twisted, dark meta special with have a dinner where Brett attempts a conversation about race.
–Dream Corp, LLC-a workplace comedy set in a therapy facility where they analyze dreams. It’s probably not unlike a workplace set at Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’s Lacuna Inc.
–Million Dollar Extreme Presents: World Peace-Sam Hyde, Nick Rochefort, Charles Carroll finally get to bring their self-described “super pure tragicomedy” to TV.
–Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio-A new “one-off bits, shorts and songs” filled show from China, IL’s Brad Neely.
–Decker: Unclassified-the action series parody starring Tim Heidecker gets upgraded to a full series.
–Art Prison–Tom Kauffman and Paul Isakson get the guiding hand of Dan Harmon and Starburns Industries for this live action pilot that puts an America’s Got Talent-style show in the so-called Prison for the Performing Arts.
–Lazor Wulf-Henry Bonsu and China IL’s Daniel Weidenfeld brings us all a wolf that has a laser on his back and who just happens to believe love has no limit.
