As anyone who’s seen the video for Earl Sweatshirt’s “Earl” or Tyler, the Creator’s VMA-winning “Yonkers” can attest, Odd Future totally deserve their own “Jackass”-style TV show. And now, they’ve got one … thanks to the guys behind “Jackass.”
Called “Loiter Squad,” the live-action series is set to air on the Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim next year and, according to a press release, will feature “sketches, man-on-the-street segments, pranks and music from Odd Future Wolf Gang Kill Them All” (and, presumably, lots of loitering, too). Each episode will be 15 minutes long, and the show will be produced by Dickhouse Entertainment, the Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine and Spike Jonze partnership behind such fare as “Jackass,” “Rob & Big,” “Wildboyz” and “Nitro Circus.”
“The Dickhouse sensibility provides a perfect match for the unique viewpoints, masterful pranking and artistic inclinations of the Odd Future crew,” the press release rather dutifully adds.
Totally. “Loiter Squad” is just the latest addition to Odd Future’s eternally expanding empire . Tyler, the Creator has his Best New Artist Moonman (he’s also been collaborating with Pusha T as of late), and Frank Ocean’s production work can be heard on both Beyoncé’s 4 and the Jay-Z/Kanye West team-up Watch the Throne. The crew is gearing up for their first national tour, and they’ve chronicled their rather meteoric rise to fame with a prerequisite photo book — called “Golf Wang” — which will hit stores this November.
