Axe Cop Animated Series Will Premiere this July

The animated adaptation of Axe Cop now has a premiere date. Fox has announced that Axe Cop will make his television debut on Saturday, July 27. Axe Cop is a part of their Animation Domination High Definition (ADHD) programming block and will air with two other new series. It is described as follows:

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. AXE COP was developed for television by Nick Weidenfeld and Judah Miller (AMERICAN DAD). Matt Silverstein and Dave Jeser (“Drawn Together”) serve as executive producers/showrunners.

Nick Offerman will provide the voice for Axe Cop an he will be joined by Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino and Peter Serafinowicz. The show will also feature weekly guest stars including Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), rapper Tyler, The Creator, Jonathan Banks (Breaking Bad), Rob Huebel and Community creator Dan Harmon. Currently Fox has only ordered six episodes of the adaptation.
