Corus revealed its second Canadian original series for Adult Swim, the popular network that offers an unexpected blend of authenticity, originality and cleverness: Red Ketchup (20 × 30′), commissioned and greenlit by Corus’ French channel Télétoon la nuit, is based on the cult Quebec comic-book series from the ‘80s of the same name. Featuring  crazed rogue FBI agent, Steve “Red” Ketchup, the series is produced by Sphere Animation and will premiere in Canada on both Télétoon la nuit and in English on Adult Swim in 2023.

Synopsis: The series is set in the mid-1980s, at the end of the Cold War. Red Ketchup is assigned the most perilous missions by the FBI, and he pulls them off every time. The sight of his hulking frame, red eyes and orange hair is enough to make enemies quake. He breezily and brazenly takes every risk to achieve his ends, usually causing heavy collateral damage along the way. The FBI regards him as a liability and sends him to distant lands hoping he will never return. But Red Ketchup always makes it back!

Plus, the previously announced first Canadian original series for Adult Swim, Psi Cops (24 x 11′), is set to premiere Winter 2023. The adult animated series follows “top” detectives at a secret agency investigating the unexplained. The series is produced by Wind Sun Sky Entertainment and Oddfellows Labs. 

Synopsis: The crucial task of investigating spiritual phenomena, extraterrestrial life, and paranormal activity is in the hands of unjustifiably bold and unnecessarily creative investigators Agent Kydd and Agent Felixx. Operating as part of the secret agency, Psi Cops, helmed by true believer, Chief Beef, we follow Kydd and Felixx as they investigate alleged sightings of aliens, ghosts, demons and other hocus-pocus bullsh*t.
