Out There takes place in the small town of Holford and follows the lives of "socially awkward" Chad, younger brother Jay (Micucci) and best friend Chris (Roiland). DiMaggio and Mullally are Chad's conservative parents and Armisen voices the "disastrous boyfriend" of Chris' mom (Adlon). Cardinelli is Chad's crush, Sharla.

"It was important to have these characters feel real," said Quincy, who also writes and executive produces the show. "What I love so much about our cast is they are all amazing actors that can create funny, believable and endearing characters."

King of the Hill's Tony Gama-Lobo and Rebecca May are also exec producers. Out There is produced for IFC by 20th Century Fox TV.
