Adult Swim Additions

So Adult Swim adds two new series, one Canadian and one from a Burbank facility that creates show without benefit of a union contract.

Apollo Gauntlet, set to debut in the summer, hails from Canadian animator Myles Langlois. The quarter-hour animated comedy series centers on Paul Cassidy, an ordinary cop who gets transported to a futuristic medieval society by the evil Dr. Benign. ...

Science fiction adventure series Hot Streets, from animation newcomer Brian Wysol, is set for premiere on Adult Swim this fall. The quarter-hour animated series revolves around FBI Agent Mark Branski, his partner, his niece, and her dog, who investigate supernatural phenomena. ... Hot Streets is produced by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios.

The market for talent is tight right now, as it has been for a while. It would be interesting and informative to know what kind of rates Stoopid Buddy Stoodios, not known for being generous in the weekly wage department, is paying for various positions.

Adult Swim, a subset of Cartoon Network, has a love for edgy, non-union shows that pay lower wages/lower benefits. Or pay no benefits at all.
