Adult Swim OKs comedy pilot

Will feature Freestyle Love Supreme

Adult Swim and Ars Nova have set up an untitled pilot for the Gotham-based freestyle rap group Freestyle Love Supreme featuring “In the Heights” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda.

Created by Thomas Kail and Anthony Veneziale, the pilot is based on the stage show of the same name and will also star Utkarsh Ambudkar.

While the original show is all improv, during which the group uses audience suggestions to spontaneously combust into musical creations inspired by jazz, improvisational comedy and hip-hop, the pilot will be scripted with all original music.

Prior to the pickup, the group had performed at events such as the HBO U.S. Comedy Arts Festival, Paramount Comedy U.K. and the Just for Laughs Festival in Montreal.
