IFC, the network of “Portlandia,” rolls out “Out There,” a new coming-of-age animation series Friday night. It’s being described as “poignant and touching” and “warm.” EW gives it an A.
“Out There” is created, written by and executive produced by Ryan Quincy, two-time Emmy-winning animation director and producer of “South Park.” The 10-episode series chronicles the socially awkward Chad Stevens and his best friend, Chris Novak. Living in the small town of Holford in the middle of nowhere, the boys wander the surreal, bleak landscape waiting out their last few years of high school and discovering that growing up is weird to do.
Yes, growing up can be weird, but everyone has to get out there and do it.
