PR: Adult Swim Presents 14 New Episodes of Assy McGee
Det. Assy McGee shoots first and asks questions later, if at all, in 14
all-new episodes of Assy McGee, beginning Sunday, April 6, at 12:30 a.m.
(ET, PT) on Adult Swim. Assy may be down in the dumps and pretty much
does everything ass backward, but when there’s a rash of crime, he’s
dedicated to wiping the streets clean of it. His newest capers involve
everything from drug smugglers to a mysterious online lover.
In Assy McGee, crime doesn’t pay, but it sure does stink. Luckily for
the city of Exeter, Assy’s not afraid to let it all hang out to get to
the bottom of a case, no matter what the Chief, the Mayor or even his
own partner, Det. Don Sanchez thinks about his brash tactics. While
having Assy and his itchy trigger finger at every crime scene can be a
liability, there’s just no way to keep him off the scent of a hot tip.
