Created by Derrick Beckles (Totally for Teens, Hot Package) and executive produced along with Eric Andre (The Eric Andre Show), Mostly 4 Millennials is an exciting look into what makes this incredibly important generation of humans, tick.

Through her sharp wit and unapologetically feminist point of view, comedian and filmmaker Jena Friedman, takes 30 minutes to probe America, tackling evergreen issues related to politics, gender and American culture in this all-new untitled special.

She recently appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, The Nightly Show with Larry Wilmore, @Midnight with Chris Hardwick, The Jim Gaffigan Show and in the Netflix mocumentary Undecided.

Both new projects join Adult Swim's slate of original live-action series Decker, Tim & Eric's Bedtime Stories, Neon Joe, Werewolf Hunter, and online streaming hits FishCenter, The Williams Street Swap Shop, Development Meeting, Stupid Morning Bullshit, and Bloodfeast.
