(AllHipHop News) Adult Swim has announced a new line up of shows that will begin hitting the network as early as the summer of 2013. One of those shows is a cartoon starring none other than famed boxer Mike Tyson.
Dubbed as the Mike Tyson Mysteries, the carton will be a humorous view of Mike Tyson as a detective armed with a face tattoo that has magical powers.
In the Warner Bros Animation quarter-hour series Mike will solve mysteries with the help of his trusty talking pigeon side-kick.
“Adult Swim has emerged as a leading entertainment network in key sales demos and should be part of every advertiser’s consideration set during the Upfront,” said Donna Speciale, president of Turner Entertainment and Young Adults Ad Sales. “The network has a distinct relationship with its loyal and engaged audience and targeted reach across television, events, digital and promotions, all of which advertisers have the opportunity to benefit through a wide variety of creative activations.”
While a talking pigeon side-kick sounds unusual, fans of the boxer will remember that Tyson had a six-part docudrama called Taking on Tyson on Animal Planet back in 2011
Other shows set to hit the network as part of the new programming include, Aqua TV Show Show, Black Dynamite, The Boondocks, Children’s Hospital, NTSF:SD:SUV::, Robot Chicken, Squidbillies and The Venture Bros.
The network is also developing pilot projects from The Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder.
