Adult Swim Greenlights ‘Black Dynamite' Series

Adult Swim will reach into the theatrical arena for its newest animated series Black Dynamite.

The late-night network, which shares channel space with Cartoon Network, will tap The Boondocks director Carl Jones to produce the series, which is based on the critically-acclaimed 2009 feature film of the same name.

Michael Jai White, star of the film version, will provide the voice for the show's lead character Black Dynamite, an ex-CIA agent who's out to avenge the death of his brother. The series will also feature the voices of Tommy Davidson, Kym Whitley and Byron Minns, all of whom starred in the feature film.

The Black Dynamite animated series, which will be produced by Ars Nova Entertainment, is set to debut in spring of 2012, according to the network.
