Adult Swim today launched a television network first, premiering next week's entire new episode of their hit animated sci-fi comedy series "Rick and Morty" on the show's Instagram account. Not for the faint of heart, the episode is cut up into more than 100 clips to meet the Instagram limits of posting video clips of 15 seconds or less. Adult Swim announced via press release that they feel "Rick and Morty" fans are more than up to the challenge.
After missing for nearly 20 years, Rick Sanchez (Justin Roiland) suddenly arrives at his daughter Beth’s (Sarah Chalke) doorstep looking to move in with her and her family. Beth welcomes him with open arms, but her unremarkable husband Jerry (Chris Parnell) isn’t too thrilled about the tearful reunion as Rick’s arrival serves to shake things up quite a bit around the household. Rick converts the garage into his personal laboratory and gets to work on all sorts of dangerous sci-fi gadgets and contraptions. That wouldn’t be so bad if not for the fact that Rick continues to involve his grandchildren Morty (Roiland) and Summer (Spencer Grammer) in his insane adventures.
Created and executive produced by Dan Harmon ("Community," "Channel 101") and Justin Roiland ("House of Cosbys"), the half-hour, animated comedy series is produced by Starburns Industries and currently airs on Adult Swim on Mondays at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT as one of the network’s first primetime original shows.
