EXCLUSIVE: Adult Swim’s next series is a mouthful. The network has handed a 12-episode order to Paul Scheer’s NTSF:SD:SUV which, as the title suggests, is a parody of the ubiquitous genre of crime procedurals. NTSF:SD:SUV, created by and starring Scheer, originated as a mock promo (video below) that aired on another Adult Swim parody series, Rob Corddry’s Childrens Hospital, which spoofs medical shows. Scheer, who guest starred on Childrens Hospital, is writing NTSF:SD:SUV and will executive produce the series with Childrens Hospital executive producer Jon Stern. The project leapfrogged the pilot stage, going from the clip, directed by Eric Appel, straight to series. The promo features other actors, including Rob Riggle, Brandon Johnson and and June Raphael. Some of them are expected to appear in episodes of NTSF:SD:SUV but not as regulars. (Riggle recently inked a development deal with CBS and is attached to a Robert Smigel project there.) Paul Scheer, probably best known for his work on the MTV sketch comedy series Human Giant, which which he co-created, wrote and starred in with Aziz Ansari and Rob Huebel, also co-stars on FX’s comedy The League. He is with UTA and Principato Young.
