Cartoon Network Down with The Boondocks

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Cartoon Network is in the process of acquiring a half-hour animated series based on the syndicated comic strip, The Boondocks, created by Aaron McGruder and partner Reggie Hudlin. Sony developed the project for Fox, but the net ultimately passed on the left-leaning, politically charged comedy.

The toon is expected to land a spot in Cartoon Network's hugely popular Adult Swim late-night block.
