Out There chronicles the coming-of-age misadventures of socially awkward Chad (Ryan Quincy), his little brother Jay (Kate Micucci) and his best friend, Chris (Justin Roiland). Living in the small town of Holford, the boys wander its surreal, bleak landscape waiting out their last few years of adolescence. Along the way, viewers meet Chad’s conservative parents, Wayne (John DiMaggio) and Rose (Megan Mullally), as well as Chris’s single mother, Joanie (Pamela Adlon) and her disastrous boyfriend, Terry (Fred Armisen). They also meet the object of Chad’s affection, Sharla (Linda Cardellini). Head over to our gallery of characters to match pictures to voices.
“It was important to have these characters feel real. What I love so much about our cast is they are all amazing actors that can create funny, believable and endearing characters,” said Ryan Quincy.
The series confronts the perils of youth including puberty, first loves and social ostracism, while exploring that terrifying limbo between childhood and adulthood when fragile young personalities form and re-form. Relive the agony and ecstasy of those special times as Chad and Chris try to navigate life… out there.

First Look: Black Dynamite Cartoon | Warming Glow
In case you haven’t seen it, Black Dynamite is an incredible spoof of ’70s blaxploitation films that has the added bonus of Michael Jai White kicking ass and sexing up foxy ladies. And now it’s coming to Adult Swim as a cartoon, with much of the cast intact.
Black Dynamite is such a funny, underrated comedy that proves the parody isn’t truly dead. I had no idea about this, how exciting.
