Adult Swim is expanding its relationship with comedic duo Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim.
The network has handed out a series order to anthology series Tim and Eric's Bedtime Stories, a quarter-hour series set to begin production in February.
The new series will be written and directed by Heidecker and Wareheim, with episodes exploring fantasy and the unknown and featuring celebrity guests and familiar faces from the duo's popular universe.
The series hails from the duo's Abso Lutely Productions (Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job!) and will be exec produced by Heidecker, Wareheim and Dave Kneebone.
Bedtime Stories marks the pair's third show on Adult Swim, following Tim & Eric Awesome Show, Great Job! As well as animated effort Tom Goes to the Mayor.
