Seems that the show will be coming, but no word when.
A cartoon network source told Sam over at SzR
would be airing on Cartoon Network, but the rep would not confirm whether it would be on Adult Swim
, or when it would premiere.
However, Cartoon Network's online Adult Swim faq
as one of its shows in its programming section. This would appear to be a fairly
reliable indication that the show will indeed be airing on Adult Swim
some time in the near future.
