Dan Harmon drew from many inspirations for his upcoming Adult Swim animated series Rick and Morty. Among them? A certain beloved Time Lord.
“For me, the influences are more in British sci-fi stuff that I grew up reading — like Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy also there’s a heavy dose of Doctor Who in there,” he said during the show’s panel at the Television Critics Association press tour.
Rick and Morty follows a slightly sociopathic grandfather and his less-than-intelligent grandson as they have insanely dangerous adventures across the universe.
Harmon’s moment to talk about the series came among a flood of Community-related queries today during the panel. For the record, he talked about returning to Community (again) saying, “If I had not gone back after being invited back, the worst-case scenario is 30 years of wondering what would have happened had I gone back. If I go back, worst-case scenario is one sh–ty season.”
Rick and Morty premieres in December on Adult Swim. Community returns midseason.
Ed Helms, Alia Shawkat, and Jack McBrayer are among the famous folks reporting for comedic duty in season 3 of Adult Swim’s NTSF: SD: SUV::. In one episode of the police procedural parody, the Hangover Part III star will reprise his role as Eddie, the shot-in-the-leg HR rep who has now been transformed against his will into a Robocop, as you can see in the photo above. In another installment, Arrested Development‘s Shawkat plays the long-lost daughter of Kove (Kate Mulgrew) who was abandoned by her mother because she was female. A different episode will feature 30 Rock vet McBrayer as a neighbor of Trent (Paul Scheer) who is often accidentally beaten by the intel-seeking agent.
