Loiter Squad is an American sketch comedy television series starring Tyler, The Creator, Jasper Dolphin, Taco Bennett, Earl Sweatshirt, and Lionel Boyce from the Los Angeles hip hop group Odd Future. The show regularly features other members of the group as well.[1] Jeff Tremaine, Shanna Zablow, Dimitry Elyashkevich, Lance Bangs, Nick Weidenfeld and Keith Crofford are the show's executive producers.

The show was produced by Dickhouse Productions for Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block during its first and second seasons. Season three's production shifted to Gorilla Flicks, a new company founded by Dickhouse producer Jeff Tremaine.

In a July 2015 interview, Tyler, The Creator confirmed that the show was "no more," stating, “It opened the doors up for other things that my boys want to do. That was a great thing, but we’re off that.”[2]

History[edit]

The show was initially announced in early 2011, after Los Angeles hip hop collective Odd Future began to receive mainstream recognition. It was said to be like a combination of Jackass and Chappelle's Show. The show was originally going to be named Blackass, a portmanteau of the TV series Jackass and the fact that most of the cast is black. This was however, changed to the title's current variation of Loiter Squad. It was not until September 8, 2011 that the show was finally confirmed as a 15-minute live action show composed of various sketches, man on the street segments, pranks and music made by Odd Future.[3] Dickhouse Productions, the production partnership that created Jackass, produces the show.

Loiter Squad premiered on Sunday, March 25, 2012 on Cartoon Network's Adult Swim programming block, rated TV-14-DLSV. Episode 4 featured an appearance from Jackass alumnus Johnny Knoxville while fellow Jackass cast members Bam Margera, Chris Pontius and Dave England have also made guest appearances. Other appearances have included rappers Xzibit, Lil Wayne, and Juicy J, and actor Seth Rogen. In 2012, it was announced that Earl Sweatshirt and Blake Anderson will both join the cast at the show's second season.

Loiter Squad was renewed for a third season by Adult Swim. The third season premiered on May 15, 2014, which is now produced by Gorilla Flicks, the new production company of Jeff Tremaine and also produced by Camp Flog Gnaw, which is a production company by cast member, Tyler, the Creator.

In July 2015, Tyler the Creator stated that Loiter Squad would not be continuing for a fourth season.[2]
