Adult Swim Is Making A Special Episode Of 'Black Dynamite' To Address Police Brutality

Tyler the Creator, Erykah Badu and more will appear in the episode.

Erykah Badu, Tyler, The Creator, Tim Blake Nelson and J.B. Smoove are set to appear in a special 1-hour musical episode of Adult Swim’s “Black Dynamite.”

The episode, titled “The Wizard of Watts,” is reportedly going to address police brutality—which is especially timely given recent events. According to a press release, the episode is also set to feature "ninjas, a young Michael Jackson, Bill Cosby and Richard Nixon.”

Carl Jones, who directed and co-wrote “The Wizard of Watts" with Byron Minns, spoke about the purpose of the episode.

“As a comedy writer, I feel it’s my job to make people laugh while using constructive social criticism to evoke thought and inspire dialogue,” Jones explained.

“The Wizard of Watts” is slated to air January 10, 2015.
