Adult Swim continues their unique brand of humor with the witness protection comedy Delocated! Already having finished two seasons, and renewed for a third, the Jon Glaser-starring (Late Night with Conan O’Brien, Human Giant) show hasn’t yet made its way to home video.
In case you’ve never seen (or heard of) Delocated!:
After testifying against the Russian Mafia, “Jon” and his family are uprooted and start living undercover. While quietly living in an anonymous suburb, “Jon” accepts an offer for the family to participate in a reality show based on their lives, and they move to New York. However, in order to protect their identities with television audiences-and more importantly, the Russian Mafia-they wear ski masks and have their voices surgically disguised. The first season of Delocated! finds “Jon,” “Susan,” “David,” and their federal agent Mike dealing with divorce, friendship, falling in love, and becoming an honorary black man, while, in season two, a new government program is instituted to help protect “Jon”. Surprisingly a mole is discovered in the witness protection decoy program and “Jon” is pushed to the brink in a shocking turn of events.
It got its humble start in 2009 when Adult Swim ordered seven 12-minute episodes for Season 1. When it got renewed for another run, they upped the episode count to twelve and added ten minute to each show. Both seasons topped the charts for late night viewers in its time slot.
Delocated! Seasons 1 & 2 is getting released on DVD this summer on July 5th. It will retail for $29.98.
