IFC is set to premiere a new half-hour animated series, Out There, from former South Park director and producer Ryan Quincy.
The show, which debuts on February 22, features the voices of Quincy, Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Megan Mullally (Will and Grace) and Linda Cardinelli (Freaks and Geeks), as well as Pamela Adlon (Louie, King of the Hill), John DiMaggio (Futurama), Kate Micucci (Raising Hope, Bored to Death) and Justin Roiland (Fish Hooks).
Out There chronicles the coming-of-age misadventures of Chad Stevens (Quincy) and his best friend, Chris Novak (Roiland). Living in the small town of Holford in the middle of nowhere, the boys wander the surreal, bleak landscape waiting out their last few years of high school and discovering that growing up is weird to do. Puberty, first loves, social ostracism, conservative parents, single moms and their disastrous boyfriend choices -- Out There confronts these perils of youth and explores that terrifying limbo between childhood and adulthood when fragile young personalities form and deform. Relive the agony and ecstasy of those special times as Chad and Chris try to navigate life… out there.
The show is produced for IFC by 20th Century Fox TV and exec produced by King of the Hill‘s Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May.
