First ‘HarmonQuest’ trailer brings us an animated D&D adventure with Dan Harmon

If you’ve ever wanted to play Dungeons & Dragons with Dan Harmon, Seeso has the next best thing. The comedy streaming service is bringing HarmonQuest to subscribers this month, a series that features Harmon and some of his famous comedian friends — not to mention animated versions of them — as they engage in the fantasy role-playing game. Seeso dropped the first trailer today, and as you’d expect, it looks like a fun romp guided by their creative minds.

The trailer makes it clear that the series isn’t taking itself too seriously; the group of comedians may have performed in front of a large studio audience, but they seem like any old group of friends hanging out, right down to their huge supply of snacks. As the trailer says, they are there to “act out [Harmon’s] role-playing fantasies and flex their comedy muscles.”

The animation makes the trailer even more entertaining. Each comedian has a lookalike character, dressed for D&D, and the visual makes it easier for the audience to follow the story’s progression. We see how the group’s quest doesn’t always go smoothly, for example, like when they are out of sync on just how a scene should play out.

Harmon’s quest-mates are a hilarious group, of course. He is joined by Erin McGathy (Harmontown), Jeff Bryan Davis (Whose Line Is It Anyway?), and Spencer Crittenden, who has worked with Harmon on Community, Rick and Morty, and more. Special guests also participate, including Aubrey Plaza (Parks and Recreation), Chelsea Peretti (Brooklyn Nine-Nine), Thomas Middleditch (Silicon Valley), Steve Agee (The Sarah Silverman Program), Paul F. Tompkins (Best Week Ever), Ron Funches (Undateable), John Hodgman (The Daily Show with Jon Stewart), and Kumail Nanjiani (Silicon Valley).

The series, which is adapted from a segment on the podcast Harmontown, premieres with all 10 episodes on July 14.

It's only fitting that an Austrian currently in the United States would want to watch the race in Austrian and not English, right? This is completely safe (and legal) to do with a VPN.

Pennywise the clown in It Chapter Two

Over the course of his long career, Stephen King has become something of an expert on the question of evil. He writes about evil in all of its forms and seems to thrive in the chaos that his darkest characters bring to his stories.
