Jay-Z, Odd Future Developing Shows For Adult Swim
OFWGKTA and Hov are reportedly in talks to bring new programming to Cartoon Network.
Odd Future and Jay-Z are venturing into the animated realm. According to several sources, the rap acts have ironed out business deals with Cartoon Network to set up projects with Adult Swim.
Hov performed last night at Adult Swim's annual upfront party, which took place at New York City's Roseland Ballroom. While he didn't announce the deal, Adweek reports that he was set to reveal that he inked a development deal with Adult Swim for an original animated series. The deal is said to be complete, and would mark his first venture into television production and development.
Meanwhile, plans of OFWGKTA's show came to light in March 2011, when they revealed their upcoming project in their Billboard cover story. The show, which is currently in development, is described as a mixture of Jackass and Chappelle's Show.
