John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant Workplace Comedy Greenlit at Adult Swim

It’s back to work for John Krasinski and Stephen Merchant.

Adult Swim has ordered “Dream Corp, LLC.,” an animated comedy series created by Daniel Stessen (“The Gold Sparrow”). The show is exec produced by the two “The Office” alums as well as Allyson Seeger, Krasinski’s producing partner through his Sunday Night shingle.

Described as an absurd workplace comedy, this series is set in a neglected dream therapy facility. Episodes will feature a rotating cast of desperate patients who have their dreams recorded and analyzed by Dream Corp’s absent-minded professor, Dr. Roberts (Jon Gries), and his team of unremarkable scientists.

Adult Swim announced that the “Dream Corp” pilot was on its development slate at its 2014 upfront presentation. It will be the first Adult Swim original series to utilize rotoscope technology, or the act of tracing over live-action footage frame-by-frame.

The young adult-skewing Turner-owned cabler is known for series like the Rob Corddry comedy “Childrens Hospital” and Justin Roiland and Dan Harmon’s animated program “Rick and Morty.” At this year’s upfronts, Adult Swim announced that it had greenlit an live-action pilot starring Jason Alexander. It also hosted a party that featured a performance by Miley Cyrus dressed as a psychedelic butterfly.
