"BLACK DYNAMITE" LIGHTS UP THE NIGHT

New Animated Series Debuts Sunday, July 15th at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Adult Swim

Bust out your best polyester pants suit, because Black Dynamite is about to explode on the scene in 1970s Los Angeles. Black Dynamite, the new 30-minute animated series, will premiere on Sunday, July 15th, 2012 at 11:30 p.m. (ET/PT) on Adult Swim.

Based on 2009's critically-acclaimed feature film, the Black Dynamite animated series further chronicles the exploits of the central character, Black Dynamite, and his crew. Under the direction of Carl Jones (The Boondocks), the series features the voice talent of Michael Jai White (For Better or Worse, The Dark Knight, Why Did I Get Married?), Tommy Davidson (In Living Color, Bamboozled), Kym Whitley (The Cleveland Show, Brian McKnight Show), and Byron Minns (Mongo Wrestling Alliance), all of whom starred in the feature film.

Black Dynamite is a 1970s renaissance man with a kung-fu grip. A lover and a fighter who is not afraid to leap before he looks. His sidekick extraordinaire is Bullhorn, the brains and cunning that complements Black Dynamite's hard-hittin', bone-crushin' style. Providing comic relief on the mean streets is Cream Corn and classing up the place is the gorgeous Honey Bee.

Black Dynamite, the animated series, is being produced by Ars Nova. Jon Steingart, Carl Jones, and Jillian Apfelbaum are executive producers. Brian Ash is co-executive producer. Scott Sanders, Michael Jai White and Byron Minns are producers. Monica Jones is associate producer. Lesean Thomas is creative producer/supervising director. Original music by Adrian Younge. Black Dynamite is being animated by Titmouse, Inc.
