Dan Harmon's 'Rick and Morty' gets series order from Adult Swim

dan-harmon-paley-2012-gi.jpg"Community" creator Dan Harmon will be back on TV with a new series ... in about a year.

Harmon's Adult Swim project, "Rick and Morty," has been picked up to series, Deadline reports. The animated show, which he co-created with Justin Roiland, will premiere late next year or in early 2014.

The show follows the adventures of a brilliant inventor and his less bright grandson. Adult Swim announced it was ordering a pilot at its upfront in May -- around the same time Harmon was let go from "Community."

Harmon and Roiland have worked together several times in the past, notably on Channel 101 and its VH1 offshoot, "Acceptable.TV." Roiland also acted in several episodes of "The Sarah Silverman Program."

In addition to "Rick and Morty," Harmon also has comedy projects in development at CBS and FOX.
