“Adult Swim, the leader in adult animation and #1 destination for young adults, has greenlit ‘Common Side Effects,’ it was announced today at Annecy International Animation Film Festival. The half-hour comedy series delves into the complex reactions to the revelation of the mysterious elixir of life. ‘Common Side Effects’ was created by Joe Bennett and Steve Hely and is executive produced by ‘King of the Hill’ creators Mike Judge and Greg Daniels,” Warner Bros. Discovery said in a statement.
They continued, ‘”Common Side Effects’ follows former high school lab partners Marshall and Frances who begin to unravel a conspiracy involving big pharma and the federal government to suppress knowledge of a rare mushroom that may hold the key to curing all the world’s diseases.”
