Following a starring role in the second season of the critically-acclaimed ABC drama, American Crime, Andre 3000 is headed back to the small screen, kind of. Three Stacks has signed on as a musical guest for a new Adult Swim show premiering later this week.
The show entitled, Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio follows three animated web series Neely has worked on with Adult Swim. I am Baby Cakes, The Professor Brothers, and China, Illinois, all of which have very similar visual styles and include many of the same characters.
Andre 3000 isn’t the only big name on this roster however, the show is full of musicians for the first season including, Minneapolis rapper Lizzo, and Father John Misty, who will both perform original songs composed by Neely. The show’s cast features Iliana Glazer, Gabourey Sidibe, and Darrell Hammond of SNL fame.
If you’re confused about the title, don’t be – Neely says “It’s intentionally meaningless.” He told IndieWire in an interview coming up with a meaningless name “is a lot harder than you would imagine.”
“We tried some normal titles and it just didn’t match the silliness of the show,” Neely continued. “Those words [just] mean this show. That’s what it means.”
Upon watching the trailer, one can definitely see that the show is going to be a visual mind trip. Be sure to check it out for yourself above.
Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio starts July 10 on Adult Swim at 12:45AM.
