Production is now underway in Los Angeles, California for "The Eric Andre Show," a new late-night talk show from Adult Swim being directed by Andrew Barchilon & Kitao Sakuri.

Just another talk show? Think again. "The Eric Andre Show" may be the most manic and unorthodox late night talk show ever made. The show's traditional talk show format quickly devolves into chaos as its inept and bipolar host Eric Andre ("Don't Trust the B**** in Apt. 23") along with his apathetic co-host Hannibal Buress "(30 Rock," "Saturday Night Live") subvert all late-night conventions.

Taking place on a dingy public-access TV channel within an alternate reality, "The Eric Andre Show" creates its own distorted pop culture universe by conducting interviews with an unpredictable mix of actual celebrities, "fake" celebrities and extreme real-life weirdos. These interviews are broken up with deranged man-on-the-street segments, surreal flashes of inexplicable studio chaos, talk show desk-pieces and the general deconstruction of late night's most beloved tropes in every quarter hour episode.

"The Eric Andre Show" is being produced by Abso Lutely, and Executive Produced by Eric Andre, Daniel Weidenfeld ("China, IL"), Dave Kneebone ("Tim & Eric Awesome Show," "Great Job!") and premieres on Adult Swim in 2012.
