Adult Swim Greenlights Two New Series, MONDO’s “Apollo Gauntlet” and Stoopid Buddy’s “Hot Streets”

Adult Swim, which continues to dominate the ratings and remains the #1 in basic cable with millennials for more than a decade, announces two action-packed new animated series that will premiere later this year, with Apollo Gauntlet out this summer, followed by Hot Streets in the fall. These two new series continue the network’s commitment to producing new and innovative programming for its fans.

Both series are produced by two dynamic studios. Hot Streets hails from Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the team behind Robot Chicken, while Apollo Gauntlet comes from MONDO’s animation studio, Six Point Harness, and Mosaic.

Apollo Gaunlet

Independent Canadian animator, Myles Langlois, brings an ’80s Saturday-morning cartoon vibe with Apollo Gauntlet. And first-time animated series creator, Brian Wysol (writer on Rick and Morty and Robot Chicken) brings Hot Streets to screen.

APOLLO GAUNTLET Series Description
​On Earth, Paul Cassidy is just another cop, but when the evil Dr. Benign transports him to another world, he becomes a new kind of hero. With the help of a magical suit and a set of talking gauntlets, he’s able to fight crime exactly the way he wants…and he’ll do it as APOLLO GAUNTLET! Set in a futuristic medieval society, the quarter-hour animated adventure comedy series is created by Myles Langlois and is produced by MONDO’s animation studio, Six Point Harness, and Mosaic.

Hot Streets

Hot Streets is produced by the dynamic Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, the team behind Robot Chicken. First-time animated series creator, Brian Wysol (writer on Rick and Morty and Robot Chicken) brings Hot Streets to screen.

Brian said, “’Rick and Morty’ was my first professional writing job. My contributions were minimal, but I consider the experience an intense lesson on storytelling and it had a great effect on the way I ran the writers room. ‘Hot Streets’ is sometimes psychedelic, sometimes crazy, but i think the most interesting thing about it is that it’s ultimately character driven. From the beginning, Stoopid Buddy Stoodios was vigilant in preserving my vision for the show, and it’s been an amazing collaboration.“
