If you were wondering where the former Amy Pond would resurface, wonder no more.

Adult Swim's press release on the matter is actually pretty funny:

Production is now underway in Los Angeles and London for season three of NTSF:SD:SUV::, a live-action comedy series coming to Adult Swim this July. The show stars Paul Scheer (The League, Human Giant), Kate Mulgrew (Star Trek: Voyager), Brandon Johnson (Get Him to the Greek), June Diane Raphael (Burning Love), Rob Riggle (The Daily Show), Martin Starr (Freaks & Geeks), Peter Serafinowicz (Star Wars: Episode 1 - The Phantom Menace), and welcomes Karen Gillan (Dr. Who) to the cast this season.

"I'm really excited to be quoted in this article," said executive producer and star Paul Scheer.

Terrorism is back and better than ever! Join Special Agent Trent Hauser and his elite counter-terrorist unit, the NTSF:SD:SUV:: (National Terrorist Strike Force: San Diego: Sport Utility Vehicle::) for a third season of furious screaming, pregnant pauses, and even more civilian casualties than last season! This year, Trent and his team will employ some of the riskiest methods they've ever attempted in order to bring down San Diegan terrorist scum, including surgically swapping faces with each other, kidnapping an alien, faking their own deaths, getting into the viral video biz, unfreezing a former 1960's radical, boarding Comic-Con Air, and heading into the dangerous British District of San Diego (which will be shot in the UK!) for a sweeping NTSF:SD:SUV:: two-part epic. Plus, the return of THE TIME ANGELS!

"Adult Swim continues to exercise sound judgment in programming NTSF:SD:SUV:: for a third season. If this decision were on Facebook, I would click 'Like'," said executive producer Jonathan Stern.

Points off for spelling it "Dr. Who." That aside, it does sound like she's being a wee bit typecast so far.
