Cartoon Network's popular Adult Swim has announced a new TV series starring upstart skate-rap collective Odd Future.

 

Titled Loiter Squad, the 15-minute live-action series will feature skits, sketches, on-the-street interviews, Jackass-style pranks and music from Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All, who have been making even more noise lately with founder Tyler the Creator's Best New Artist win at the VMAs.

 

OFWGKTA is teaming up with production company Dickhouse Entertainment, which is owned by Jackass star Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine and idiosyncratic film/video director Spike Jonze, to create the show.

 

Dickhouse Entertainment has created several successful series, including Jackass, Rob & Big, Rob Dyrdek's Fantasy Factory, Wild Boyz and others—all of which, much like Odd Future, heavily feature skating, shocking antics and acting a fool in general.

 

Loiter Squad will join Cartoon Network's quirky, acclaimed Adult Swim lineup, which airs every night from 9 p.m. to 6 a.m.
