Plot Synopsis

Created by Rob Corddry, Josh Perilo, and Jonathan Stern, THE HINDENBURG EXPLODES! is quarter-hour live-action comedy series that follows the unusual crew and passengers of the infamous Hindenburg zeppelin as it makes its final voyage from Nazi Germany to New Jersey, where it explodes over a landing field. But in this version of revisionist history, multiple passengers and workers on the Hindenburg are planning the zeppelin's demise: time traveler Reggie Fox has gone back in time to kill Hitler; the Wright brothers are plotting to take down the aircraft because they're concerned planes won't be the future of air travel, but they instead help cigarette girl Trixie make the blimp fart methane; adventurer Penelope Brown, who stowed away on the Hindenburg to assassinate the Fuhrer; and a killer zombie that's on the loose. But can the magician perform the biggest feat of his life and save the day? Adult Swim premiered the pilot of this series at 12:30am ET/PT late night Friday, December 2, 2016 (early morning Saturday, December 3).
