Spanish online video-on-demand (VOD) platform Filmin is to increase its portfolio by taking on animated series and comedies from Adult Swim.

Some of the first titles purchased will be added at the end of May, including the first season of Robot Chicken, a stop-motion animation series created by Seth Green and Matthew Senreich; Robot Chicken Star Wars, a special double episode caricaturing the Star Wars saga; and Lucy, the Daughter of the Devil.

The Adult Swim catalogue will be increased later with Eagle Heart, a Conan O'Brien comedy which parodies series such as Walker Texas Ranger; and the animation production Frankenhole, created by Dino Stamatopoulos, which mixes horror with acid humour.

The new package will come at an extra cost for Filmin's regular subscribers, although it will be available free for Premium and Premium+ subscribers.

Adult Swim, owned by Turner Broadcasting System, focuses on animation for an adult audience and in several countries is broadcast as an adult complement to the Cartoon Network.
