The Hollywood Reporter, via Cartoon Brew, reported recently that the animated series The Boondocks, based on the popular newspaper comic strip, was picked up by Cartoon Network after the Fox Broadcasting Company passed on it after viewing a 6-minute test pilot. “Cartoon [Network] is believed to be eyeing Boondocks for its ‘Adult Swim’ late-night block, given the racially and politically charged humor that has been the hallmark of the newspaper strip. Boondocks has had a fast rise since its 1999 debut and now appears in more than 200 newspapers. As in the strip, the TV series will chronicle the clash of cultures that ensues when two youths from inner-city Chicago, Riley and Huey, move to the suburbs to live with their grandfather.”
