Tyler, The Creator and Adult Swim Team Up for New Show ‘The Jellies!’
Tyler, The Creator might be laying low with his music career lately, but he's still racking up a hefty schedule for himself. Earlier this week, it was reported the Odd Future co-founder's Viceland television show, Nuts and Bolts, would be premiering in August. Now, Tyler is adding to his television work by teaming up with Adult Swim for another new original series.
According to reports, the Cherry Bomb rapper is bringing his The Jellies! show, which previously aired on the Golf Media app back in 2015, to the adult cartoon network. The show follows the story of a Jellyfish family who have a 16-year-old son, Cornell Jelly, who is human. Cornell eventually figures out he is adopted, resulting in a freak out and his journey to "find himself." The show will reportedly feature voice acting by Tyler, Lionel Boyce (a.k.a. L-Boy), Blake Anderson of Workaholics, Phil LaMarr, AJ Johnson, Kevin Michael Richardson and others.
This isn't the first time Tyler has teamed up to work with Adult Swim, as he and his Odd Future friends starred in the original series Loiter Squad, which ran from 2012 to 2014. The trailer for The Jellies! makes reference to the former live-action comedy show, which featured pranks, man-on-the-street interviews and hilarious skits with rappers and skateboarders.
There's no exact release date for The Jellies! just yet, but it is slated to premiere some time this summer. It will be followed by Tyler's Nuts and Bolts series on Viceland, which premieres on August 3.
