Show to return for second season on network
Adult Swim has picked up a second season of “Eagleheart.”The network originally debuted the campy blood and brawn show in February, where it topped its midnight timeslot with men 18-34 and 18-49, and also landed as basic cable’s top sitcom with men 18-49. With former “Late Night With Conan O’Brien” writers Michael Koman and Andrew Weinberg, as well as former “Human Giant” EP Jason Woliner, at the helm, “Eagleheart” boasts a lengthy exec producer list including Jeff Ross and O’Brien. Starring Chris Elliott as U.S. Marshal Chris Monsanto, the show’s comedic use of unnecessary bloodshed will continue on in Adult Swim’s late-night lineup. “Eagleheart” airs midnight Thursdays.
