Turner-owned Adult Swim, ahead of its Wednesday upfront, announced it has ordered a batch of pilots — eight of them, according to The Hollywood Reporter.

Among the projects is an animated spin on “Harold & Kumar,” with film series stars John Cho and Kal Penn voicing the two lead characters.

Another animated effort comes from “Community” creator Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland: “Rick & Morty” tracks the life journeys of a brilliant inventor and his grandson.

Also on tap: “Colonel Wallace” (working title), a 15-minute piece from Greg Cohen; “Coffin Dodgers,” from Dave Silverstein and Matt Jeser; “Green Bench: The American Day Dream,” from Internet sketch comedy operation Green Bench; “Freestyle Love Supreme,” a live-action half-hour comedy from Ars Nova; “King Star King,” an animated 15-minute effort from JJ Villard and Eric Kaplan; and “Rolling With Dad,” a half-hour animated project focusing on a disabled man and his family.
