Less than three months after Adult Swim announced it had given a series order to Michael Cusack's YOLO: Crystal Fantasy, viewers are finally getting a look at the quarter-hour animated series. Produced by Princess Pictures, the series follows Australian party girls Sarah and Rachel as they seek out fun times, new experiences, positive vibes, and hopeful horoscopes in the bizarre town of Wollongong. Sarah's looking for love while Rachel is craving chaos, with the combustible combination of the two bringing them into conflict as they encounter surreal Australiana, strange bush creatures, and some seriously eccentric nomads. Cusack produces alongside Mike Cowap, and will executive produce alongside Greta Lee Jackson and Emma Fitzsimons. Now here's your look at YOLO: Crystal Fantasy, premiering on Adult Swim on August 9:
