Turner’s Adult Swim for Australia’s Nine

July 8, 2016

Adult Swim, Turner’s irreverent brand of young-adult comedy, has found a new home in Australia under a syndication agreement with Nine.

Nine’s 9GO! channel will host a weekly one-hour, Adult Swim-branded, block of programmes every Sunday evening, starting July 10th. The Adult Swim block will feature hit shows such as Aqua Teen Hunger Force, Harvey Birdman, Robot Chicken, Squidbillies and The Venture Bros.

Nine has also picked up the local format rights to Adult Swim’s FishCentre, which will introduce the block each week The deal marks a free-to-air debut for many of these shows, including Rick and Morty.

Robi Stanton, Turner Australia’s General Manager, said: “Adult Swim has a great new home in Australia. This partnership announcement with Nine will no doubt excite comedy-craving late teens and young adults across the country. Adult Swim produces some of the wackiest, craziest and cheekiest shows out there, and there’ll be only one destination on Sunday late nights – and that’s 9GO!.”
