New ‘Out There’ Toon to Premiere on IFC
IFC will premiere a new animated series by former South Park director and producer Ryan Quincy on February 22. The show, which is called Out There, features the voices of Fred Armisen (Portlandia), Megan Mullally (Will and Grace) and Linda Cardinelli (Freaks and Geeks), as well as Quincy, who will voice the lead character, as mentioned in The Hollywood Reporter. The voice cast also includes Pamela Adlon (Louie, King of the Hill), John DiMaggio (Futurama), Kate Micucci (Raising Hope, Bored to Death) and Justin Roiland (Fish Hooks).
Out There centers on the residents of a small town of Holford and follows the lives of socially awkward Chad, younger brother Jay (Micucci) and best friend Chris (Roiland). DiMaggio and Mullally are Chad’s conservative parents and Armisen voices the “disastrous boyfriend” of Chris’ mom (Adlon). Cardinelli is Chad’s crush, Sharla.
“It was important to have these characters feel real,” said Quincy, who also writes and executive produces the show. “What I love so much about our cast is they are all amazing actors that can create funny, believable and endearing characters.”
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.
