Superhero Hype reports that the Axe Cop animated series will debut on FOX on Saturday, July 27 as part of their Animation Domination High Definition (ADHD) programming block. It will air with two other new shows.
Here's the official description from FOX: From the unfettered imagination of a five-year-old boy comes AXE COP, an action-comedy about the most badass superhero who ever existed! Operating on only two minutes of sleep a night and fueled by a diet consisting solely of birthday cake, AXE COP and his loyal partner, FLUTE COP, unleash their unique brand of vigilante justice on bad guys everywhere - including stopping Hitler from creating an army of evil zombie robots and helping BAT WARTHOG MAN find the villain who stole all his best friends! AXE COP is the unique comic phenomenon created and written by Malachai Nicolle (age five) and his brother, Ethan Nicolle (age 30). What started as a small passion project between two brothers quickly evolved into an online sensation and was later published as a graphic novel by Dark Horse Books.
The show was developed for TV by Nick Weidenfeld and Judah Miller (American Dad). Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser (Drawn Together) are the executive producers/showrunners.
The cast includes Nick Offerman as Axe Cop with Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino and Peter Serafinowicz. It will feature weekly guest stars like Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), rapper Tyler, The Creator, Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad), Rob Huebel and Community creator Dan Harmon. So far only six episodes have been ordered.
