VIDEO: First Look - Adult Swim Teams With Tyler, The Creator on New Animated Series THE JELLYS!

Continuing to grow their slate of original programming, Adult Swim announced today a new animated series from Tyler, The Creator and Lionel Boyce called THE JELLYS!, premiering this summer. Coming into the Turner Upfront 2017 presentation on May 17 in New York City, Adult Swim has remained the top destination with millennials for more than a decade in both primetime and late night, growing their audience and extending their reach to a new generation of fans.

The Jellies! is a quarter-hour animated series created by Tyler and Boyce. The show follows a family of Jellyfish, including their 16-year-old human son Cornell. When Cornell learns that he was adopted at birth, he is shocked by the news and spirals out of control as he tries to "find himself." The result is he, his family and friends continue to end up in uncanny situations.

The show's musical score and original composition is created by Tyler, who also lends his voice, along with those of Boyce, Phil LaMarr, Blake Anderson, AJ Johnson, Kevin Michael Richardson, and many more to the show's great cast of characters.

This year The Jellies! joins Adult Swim's original animated hits Samurai Jack, Mike Tyson Mysteries, Rick and Morty, Robot Chicken, Squidbillies, Mr. Pickles, and the recently announced new series Apollo Gauntlet and Hot Streets.
