Watch the Trailer for Dan Harmon's Animated TV Series, Rick and Morty
Dan Harmon’s spat with NBC execs and boot from Community season four has been a hot-button news issue as of late, especially with the recent announcement that he would return to work on season five (and possibly a movie). But Harmon didn’t just aimlessly twiddle his thumbs during his time off; he channeled his creative energy elsewhere and put together the animated Adult Swim series Rick and Morty with Justin Roiland (Adventure Time).
The half-hour comedy centers around Morty, an awkward teen who reluctantly accompanies his eccentric, wild-haired (and dare we say crazy) grandfather on his bizarre sci-fi adventures à la Back to the Future. Harmon himself is among the cast of voice actors, which also includes Chris Parnell and Sarah Chalke. Rick and Morty premieres in December, but until then you can enjoy the hilarious trailer, which originally premiered at Comic-Con, above.
