Controversial hip-hop collective Odd Future have signed on with Adult Swim to star in Loiter Squad, a 15-minute live-action comedy series in which the rappers, artists, skateboarders and assorted troublemakers in the group take part in sketches, pranks and man-on-the-street segments.

Loiter Squad will be produced by Dickhouse Entertainment, a production house headed by Spike Jonze, Jackass' Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine. The show is expected to debut sometime in early 2012.

Still, "Money For Nothing," undoubtedly augmented by its innovative early computer-animated video, stayed at Number One for three weeks.
