"Rick and Morty" Launch Intergalactic Takeover
Adult Swim's New Half-Hour Animated Series Premieres December, 2nd at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT)
Crash landing on a network near you, Adult Swim announced today the impending invasion of their highly anticipated new series Rick and Morty, from creators and executive producers Dan Harmon and Justin Roiland. The new half-hour animated series about a sociopathic scientist who drags his unintelligent grandson on insanely dangerous adventures across the universe premieres on Monday, December 2nd at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT).
After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth's (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) isn't too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick's arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions. That wouldn't be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures.
Created and executive produced by Dan Harmon (Community, Channel 101) and Justin Roiland (House of Cosbys), this half-hour, animated comedy series is produced by Starburns Industries.
