Adult Swim goes down under for its next original series, YOLO: Crystal Fantasy, which hails from YouTube creator Michael Cusack — well known for his animated comedies. The new series premieres later this year.
YOLO: Crystal Fantasy follows two Australian party girls, Sarah and Rachel, looking for fun times, new experiences, positive vibes and hopeful horoscopes in the bizarre town of Wollongong. Sarah’s quest is to find love, whereas Rachel hungers for chaos, often bringing them into conflict as they encounter surreal Australiana, strange bush creatures and eccentric nomads.
The quarter-hour animated series is created by Cusack (Bushworld Adventures, Ciggy Butt Brain) and produced by Cusack and Mike Cowap. Executive producers include Cusack, Greta Lee Jackson and Emma Fitzsimons. The series is produced by Princess Pictures.
Cusack’s viral hit Ciggy Butt Brain first caught the eye of Justin Roiland, who later asked him to create an Australian version of Rick and Morty, giving life to Bushworld Adventures. Cusack’s animation is known for combining his brand of biting satire with his own somewhat unpolished drawing style.
