The first full-length TV episode on Vine is available now, thanks to Adult Swim


Early online premieres of TV series have become more common, but never before has a show debuted on Vine. That has all changed, thanks to Adult Swim. The first episode of the new sketchy comedy show Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio has hit the video sharing service ahead of its July 10 TV premiere.

Owned by Twitter, Vine previously only allowed users to upload six-second videos, but as it has extended the length, new possibilities have opened up. Specifically, the new “watch more” feature was key in allowing the adult cartoon to become the first full-length TV episode shared on the service, as Variety reports. Although short compared to many TV episodes, the premiere of Brad Neely’s Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio is about 10 minutes long, which is obviously well beyond the old six-second maximum.

As part of Cartoon Network’s Adult Swim block, the series isn’t exactly warm and fuzzy. Its shorts and songs are full of quirky humor, and they sometimes get raunchy, which is only to be expected. Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio features creator Neely, along with Broad City star Ilana Glazer, Gabourey Sidibe (Empire), former Saturday Night Live regular Darrell Hammond, and Affion Crockett (In the Flow with Affion Crockett). The show is Neely’s second for the network, following in the footsteps of China, IL.

Neely tweeted out news of the first episode’s early online release, linking to where users can watch on Vine.

Neely and Daniel Weidenfeld serve as executive producers, while Dave Newberg co-executive produces. The series is produced by Titmouse.

Harg Nallin’ Sclopio Peepio premieres on TV on July 10 at 11:45 p.m. ET/PT, nearly two weeks after its Vine debut.
