Animated programming for adults has been a battle writers and networks have been having for years. Luckily, with the birth of Cartoon Network and Adult Swim, there is a new home for cartoons that kids just may not get.
With Adult Swim comes some amazing programming like Sealab 2021, Harvey Birdman, and Venture Bros. Sadly, the former two have since fled the airwaves, but Venture Bros is still going strong.
The show has been on break for nearly a year, but on August 28th, our favorite family of adventuring misfits is returning for a special entitled From The Ladle To The Grave: The Story of Shallow Gravy.
The special is a faux documentary in the tone of Behind the Music in which Hank’s punk metal band Shallow Gravy and how its mediocre success has effected Brock and the rest of the family.
We got the chance to speak with creators Jackson Publick and Doc Hammer about the special and the upcoming next season of Venture Bros. Check out what they had to say and be sure to catch The Venture Bros. special on August 28th, only on Adult Swim.
