If Adult Swim’s Children’s Hospital doesn’t fulfill your mainstream television drama parody need every week, don’t worry; the channel has just greenlit a new spin-off from the series based on a mock promo for a “12 hour season finale event.” Is the world ready for NTSF:SD:SUV?

As the name might suggest, NTSF:SD:SUV (or National Terrorism Strike Force: San Diego: Sports Utility Vehicle, to give the show its full title – No, really) does for crime procedurals what Children’s Hospital does for medical procedurals.
