Adult Swim Picks Up Second Season of "NTSF:SD:SUV::"

All-Star Cast Returns with Creator and Star Paul Scheer and Rebecca Romijn, Kate Mulgrew, June Diane Raphael, Martin Starr and Brandon Johnson

Adult Swim announced today that it has picked up a second season of the 15-minute cop procedural parody, NTSD:SD:SUV::. Creator and star Paul Scheer (The League) will lead the all-star cast as well as executive produce with Jonathan Stern (executive producer of Childrens Hospital). Principal photography will begin in early 2012.

"The ratings have consistently built throughout the first season and we love what we're seeing from the show," said Mike Lazzo, head of Adult Swim, "and how can you not love SUVs?"

"I'm very excited to continue to punch, shoot, stab and run people over with lawnmowers and get paid for it," said series creator and star Paul Scheer.

Currently in its first season run, NTSF:SD:SUV:: scored double-digit delivery gains throughout the month of September versus September of last year among target demos. Adults 18-34 (593,000) grew by 12%, adults 18-49 (794,000) grew by 15%, men 18-34 (360,000) grew by 11% and men 18-49 (488,000) grew by 16%. The finale of season one premieres tonight at 12:15 a.m. (ET/PT) on Adult Swim and encore performances will continue every Thursday night beginning Oct. 13.

NTSF:SD:SUV::, also known as the National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle::, is a clandestine team of government agents working together to protect San Diego from numerous terrorist threats coming in daily from such evil countries as Mexico, Canada and Guam. This team of highly trained operatives has only one job: saving your butt so you can drive your hybrid and see your movies in 3-D without worrying about living in a country run by no-good terrorists. As with many other acronym-ed police procedurals that dominate the airwaves, NTSF:SD:SUV::'s episodes are ripped from the headlines and full of suspense, action, drama, cliffhangers, yelling, passionate love-making, more yelling, death and plenty of pregnant pauses.

NTSF:SD:SUV:: is created by Paul Scheer and stars Scheer, Rebecca Romijn, Rob Riggle, Kate Mulgrew, Brandon Johnson, June Diane Raphael, Martin Starr and S.A.M., the first sentient robot on television (voiced by Peter Serafinowicz). Season 1 guest stars included Rob Riggle, John Cho, Jeff Goldblum, Jerry O'Connell, Gabrielle Union, Adam Scott, JK Simmons, Wilmer Valderama and Moon Bloodgood. NTSF:SD:SUV:: is produced by Abominable Pictures, Inc. Paul Scheer, Jonathan Stern and Curtis Gwinn are executive producers. Scheer is represented by UTA and Principato-Young, Stern is represented by Principato-Young and Gwinn is represented by The Rothman-Brecher Agency and Principato-Young.
