'Boondocks' Creator Gets Web Series

(FROM HOLLYWOOD REPORTER) – Aaron McGruder, creator of Adult Swim's animated series The Boondocks, has signed a deal with the Turner Broadcasting-owned online comedy hub Super Deluxe that will have him create and write a new live-action Web series. The Super Rumble Mixshow, set to debut next month, will consist of 20 mini-episodes, blending sketch comedy and other formats in keeping with McGruder's racially-charged humor. John Witherspoon, who voices ''Granddad Freeman'' on Boondocks, has been tapped for the new series and will answer viewer questions in a recurring skit dubbed ''Negrology.'' (Hollywood Reporter)
