NTSF:SD:SUV:: (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle) is a quarter-hour format American television comedy that parodies the police procedural and action film genres.



Created by comedian Paul Scheer, NTSF:SD:SUV:: (National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle::) was first featured in a set of mock promotional television advertisements aired during season one broadcasts of Childrens Hospital on Adult Swim.[1] The mock promos starred Scheer as agent Trent Hauser, along with June Diane Raphael, Brandon Johnson, and Rob Riggle. From the mock promos, the program was ordered to series with a 12-episode season, bypassing the television pilot stage of development.[2] Joining the cast for the series are Kate Mulgrew, Rebecca Romijn, and Martin Starr. NTSF:SD:SUV:: airs after Childrens Hospital on late night Thursday, premiering on the night of July 21, 2011[3] – 12:15 am EST, Friday, July 22 on Adult Swim.[4][5][6] On October 6, 2011, Adult Swim announced that it picked up a second season of the series, with principal photography to begin in early 2012.[7] The second season premiered on August 10, 2012.[8][9][10][11] On October 3, 2012, Adult Swim announced that the show had been renewed for a third season.[12] The third season premiered July 25, 2013.[13]

[NTSF: SD: SUV] began as a phony advertisement during the re-broadcast of the initial web version of Childrens Hospital on Adult Swim. That's right. As much as I'd like to take credit, I had nothing to do with it. Jon Stern is the connection – he's executive producing it with my good friend Paul Scheer. Paul was nice enough to bail me out when I was about 45 seconds to a minute short for one episode. They had shot that fake commercial as sort of a pilot, so Jon suggested sticking that in there.

The network has handed a 12-episode order to Paul Scheer's NTSF:SD:SUV which, as the title suggests, is a parody of the ubiquitous genre of crime procedurals. [...] The project leapfrogged the pilot stage, going from the clip, directed by Eric Appel, straight to series.
