EXCLUSIVE First Look: Paul Scheer's New Adult Swim Show 'NTSF:SD:SUV::'
by Maggie Furlong
Adult Swim fans, one of the funniest fake network interstitials ever is now a TV show. And, judging by these exclusive photos, it's going to be SFA. (That's So Freaking Awesome for the uninitiated.)
'National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle' -- or the tongue-twisting acronym 'NTSF:SD:SUV::' -- was created by our pal Paul Scheer, who also stars (with hair!) as a member of an elite group of government agents tasked with protecting one of the country's biggest terrorist targets: San Diego.
Now San Diego might not sound like a hotbed of terrorist activity, but you'd be surprised at what Mexico, Canada and even Guam have cooking in southern California.
The show's premiere is a few weeks away (Thurs., July 21, 12:15AM on Adult Swim), but we've got the exclusive first look at two images featuring Scheer and co-stars Rebecca Romjin, Kate Mulgrew, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael and Martin Starr.
As Adult Swim describes it: "This team of highly trained operatives has only one job: saving your ass so you can drive your Prius and see your movies in 3-D without worrying about living in a country run by no-good terrorists."
"As with many other acronym-ed police procedurals that dominate the airwaves, 'NTSF:SD:SUV::''s season of 15-minute episodes is ripped from the headlines and full of suspense, action, drama, cliffhangers, yelling, passionate love-making, more yelling, death and plenty of pregnant pauses."
Oh and there's S.A.M. Because you can't have a strike force without the first sentient robot on TV.
