Adult Swim orders full season of Dan Harmon's animated series

Rick And Morty

(Adult Swim)

Community creator Dan Harmon is returning to TV: Adult Swim has given a 10-episode order to his animated series Rick and Morty, which revolves around the exploits of a gifted inventor and his not-so-gifted grandson. Harmon – the former Community showrunner who is also developing sitcoms at CBS and Fox – created the show with Justin Roiland (Disney Channel’s Fish Hooks).

Adult Swim announced back in May that it had greenlighted a pilot for Rick and Morty. The 30-minute episodes will air sometime in 2014, according to the network.
