Adult Swim Picks Up Crime Drama Parody Series With 12-Episode Order</u></b><br>
by Nellie Andreeva</p>

<p>EXCLUSIVE: Adult Swim's next series is a mouthful. The network has handed a 12-episode order to <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/577">Paul Scheer</a>'s <i>NTSF:SD:SUV</i> which, as the title suggests, is a parody of the ubiquitous genre of crime procedurals. <i>NTSF:SD:SUV</i>, created by and starring Scheer, originated as a mock promo (video below) that aired on another Adult Swim parody series, <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/765">Rob Corddry</a>'s <i>Childrens Hospital</i>, which spoofs medical shows. Scheer, who guest starred on <i>Childrens Hospital</I>, is writing <i>NTSF:SD:SUV</i> and will executive produce the series with <i>Childrens Hospital</i> executive producer Jon Stern. The project leapfrogged the pilot stage, going from the clip, directed by <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/1227">Eric Appel</a>, straight to series. The promo features other actors, including <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/901">Rob Riggle</a>, <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/5157">Brandon Johnson</a> and <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/3603">June Raphael</a>. Some of them are expected to appear in episodes of <i>NTSF:SD:SUV</i> 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 <i>Human Giant</i>, which which he co-created, wrote and starred in with <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/2067">Aziz Ansari</a> and <a href="http://losangeles.ucbtheatre.com/performers/900">Rob Huebel</a>, also co-stars on FX's comedy <i>The League</i>. He is with UTA and Principato Young.</p>
