Donald Faison is known for his roles in television shows such as Clueless, the medical comedy Scrubs and the cerebral sci-fi drama Extant. Now, fans of Faison could see him in Alabama Jackson, a new animated digital series set to air on Adult Swim’s digital platforms.
Created by Faison himself, Alabama Jackson also stars newly-minted Oscars host Wanda Sykes and Seth Green and is produced by Stoopid Buddy Stoodios. Alabama Jackson marks the first of several new digital short series to premiere on Adult Swim’s YouTube channel.
The synopsis is as follows: “Donald Faison is Alabama Jackson, a fast-talking, overmatched hustler sent to the past to save black history from President Woodrow Wilson (Green) and his evil henchman. His time-traveling partner is Harriet Tubman (Sykes) who uses a quick wit and the open hand of justice to deliver punishment to anyone who gets in her way. Together the duo must go back in time to save life as we know it, one revolutionary at a time.”
Alabama Jackson premieres on Adult Swim’s YouTube channel, and consists of seven new episodes airing daily at Noon ET / 9:00 a.m. PT beginning Tuesday, February 15 through Monday, February 21.
