King Star King is an Adult Swim series, created by JJ Villard and developed by Tommy Blacha, that premiered along with five other pilots as part of the Adult Swim Pilots contest on adultswim.com on July 22, 2013.
The series was subsequently green lit by Adult Swim and the first 6 episodes premiered on Adultswim.com on June 15, 2014. The series marks the first original series from Adult Swim to be streamed exclusively online.
The pilot aired on Adult Swim's Toonami block during the extra hour added by Daylight Savings on November 2, 2013.
King Star King features a punk rock, modern day he-man who falls from the realm of the gods to land as a fry cook in a slummy waffle joint. King Star King must regain his memory to defeat the evil (and adorable) Spring Bunny and rescue his love, the megababe Princess Snow White. Only then will King Star King regain his rightful place in the heavens.
