Adult Swim Picks Up ‘Community’ Creator Dan Harmon’s New Series

Community‘ may continue to be in dire straights given that NBC still hasn’t picked a return airdate for the 13-episode fourth season, but ousted creator Dan Harmon is still sitting pretty. In addition to several other projects in the works at both CBS and FOX, Adult Swim is the first to show its faith in the former showrunner by picking up Harmon’s animated series ‘Rick and Morty’ to series. That said, how many episodes is the order for, and what story will it tell?

It’s a good day for ousted ‘Community’ creator and showrunner Dan Harmon, even as his former series still languishes in NBC limbo. We’ve just learned that Adult Swim has picked up Harmon’s animated series ‘Rick and Morty’ for a full 10 half-hour episodes, to debut sometime in late 2013. Penned by Harmon and Justin Roiland, the series follows the misadventures of a genius inventor and his less-than-genius grandson.

As previously reported, ‘Rick and Morty’ isn’t Harmon’s only post-’Community’ success, as the producer has also landed deals to develop sitcoms at both CBS and FOX. He and writer Charlie Kaufman are also using Kickstarter to develop an upcoming feature.

What say you? Do you think Harmon has what it takes to follow up ‘Community’ with ‘Rick and Morty’? Will you tune in for any of his new series?
