As previously reported, Tim Heidecker and comedy partner Eric Wareheim have a new project with Adult Swim called Tim & Eric’s Bedtime Stories, an anthology series in the Twilight Zone vein that finally has a debut date. The pilot will, appropriately enough, debut at midnight on Halloween, following Zach Galifianakis and Tim & Eric as they move into a haunted house in order to claim their grandfather’s inheritance.
Meanwhile, Paul Scheer and fellow NTSF:SD:SUV:: writers Jonathan Stern and Curtis Gwinn expand Adult Swim’s quarter-hour parody series empire with their pilot for Filthy Sexy Teen$ (safe for work unless you forget the dollar sign), a send-up of shows like Gossip Girl and Pretty Little Liars. It hasn’t been ordered to series yet, but with NTSF cast members like Kate Mulgrew also committed to Orange Is The New Black and June Diane Raphael’s multiple projects with writing partner Casey Wilson in development, Adult Swim might be wise to start branching out into Scheer's other projects. The pilot stars Wilson, Steven Yuen, Chris Parnell, and True Blood’s Marshall Allman, and airs in lieu of a new NTSF this Thursday night, October 10.
