Odd Future Reality Show ‘Loiter Squad’ to Debut in 2012
Odd Future's appearance at the MTV Video Music Awards was apparently just the beginning. Now, the L.A.-based rappers are about to get their own reality show, 'Loiter Squad,' which will air on Adult Swim starting in 2012, according to NME.
The show comes from the producers of 'Jackass,' including Johnny Knoxville, Jeff Tremaine and director Spike Jonze. Similar to 'Jackass,' the show will feature pranks and sketches starring Odd Future, as well as live performances of the group's music.
What a sweet deal for Odd Future. Not only do the guys, most of whom are in their teens and early 20s, get to goof off, but they'll be getting paid for it! Episodes will be 15 minutes long and will be part of Adult Swim's lineup of adult-oriented animation, sketch comedies and other unusual styles of entertainment.
Presumably, the show will give fans a chance to get to know the personalities of all of the collective's members. Odd Future's individuals have almost become more famous than the group itself, with Tyler, the Creator taking home Best New Artist at the VMAs and Frank Ocean earning featured spots on two tracks on the Kanye West-Jay-Z collaboration 'Watch the Throne.'
Odd Future's last release as a group was the 2010 mixtape 'Radical,' though several members have released solo mixtapes since then.
