Disney XD said Future-Worm!, a new short-form animated series from Emmy-winning director Ryan Quincy (South Park, Out There), is coming to the network in short form and as a newly-announced full-length series starting this fall. Quincy, who joined the Disney Television Animation team in 2013, is the executive producer.
Eric Coleman, senior vice president, original series, at Disney Television Animation said in a release: "When we first heard Ryan's pitch, we knew we had something unique. It's your classic 'Boy and His Worm' story, but this worm is from the future…and has a beard. We loved Ryan's original animated shorts so much we greenlit a full series."

Future-Worm! follows Danny, an optimistic 12-year-old who creates a time machine lunch box and befriends Future Worm, a fearless worm from the future. They navigate through "space, time and study hall, embarking on adventures and spontaneously making up new ones along the way," the Walt Disney Co. network said.
Providing the voice of Danny is Andy Milonakis (Kroll Show). Future Worm is voiced by James Adomian (The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson).
