Adult Swim Announces Zach Galifianakis Pilot and More at Upfronts

Apparently, when he’s not cutting hair, Zach Galifianakis is living in a haunted house with Tim & Eric. Well, that’s at least what his new Adult Swim pilot would like you to believe. Entitled Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories: Zach’s Haunted House, the show would feature those three knuckleheads as relatives whose grandfather dies and leaves them each $1,000, but in order to collect, they must live in his haunted mansion for the rest of their lives. Just a guess, but it’ll probably be super weird.

At today’s Upfronts, Adult Swim also announced pilots from Paul Scheer, former Space Ghost writer Matt Harrigan, the creators of Robot Chicken, and two live-action pilots from Boondocks creator Aaron McGruder. They’ll be looking to join the new series from Dan Harmon and Mike Tyson. We already knew about Harmon’s animated show about an inventor and his grandson, Rick and Morty, but Mike Tyson? Entitled Mike Tyson Mysteries (because, why not?), the animated show will feature Mike Tyson solving mysteries with his magical face tattoo and talking pigeon. It’ll kind of be like Mad Men, but the exact opposite.
