Off the Air is an American anthology television series created by Dave Hughes for Adult Swim. The series is presented without explanation or narration as a showcase of surreal footage arranged around a single loose theme (expressed in the episode title) and blended without pause into a single continuous presentation. The show follows a strange format of euphoric images that transform into something dark, then into calm. The series premiered Adult Swim on January 1st, 2011, 4.00 am New Year's Day.
