'Fat Guy,' set for fall, 'Superjail' for 2008

Adult Swim announced it would add a seventh night of programming and several new series as it unveiled its programming at an upfront Thursday night.

Among its new series is “Superjail,” about a place described as the “most violent prison complex in the universe,” which will air in 2008.

Turner-owned net will also bow “Fat Guy Stuck In Internet,” which is essentially about just that. Project, which was developed from an online series, bows in the fall.

Turner’s youth-skewing net now airs about 45 hours of programming over six day weekly on the same channel as the Cartoon Network. The seventh night, on Friday, will result in the addition of several hours of programming.

At the upfront, net also unwrapped previously announced series “Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil,” about a single woman whose father happens to be Satan. In addition, a “Star Wars”-themed episode of “Robot Chicken” featuring the voice of George Lucas will air in June.
