I'm loving the trailer for Axe Cop, the new series debuting in July from Animation Domination HD - or ADHD, they're very clever - on Fox. The series stems from a web comic written by a five-year-old and illustrated by his older brother, and from the preview, it seems as if they've gotten that weird, elusive child's perspective down pat. I love the kid voiceover, but Hitler's zombie island in space and Dr. Doo Doo threatening to make Axe Cop poop...to death! feels even more awesomely kid-conceived.
According to showrunner Matt Silverstein, Axe Cop's young creator Malachai Nicolle is "very much involved" in the show, and writers call him for ideas that they then incorporate into the series. I love that so, so much.
And of course with Nick Offerman voicing the titular hirsute officer of the law, a couple of mustache jokes couldn't be avoided. Other castmembers will include Offerman's real life wife, comic genius Megan Mullally along with Ken Marino, Patton Oswalt and Peter Serafinowicz, and the show will feature guest runs from Breaking Bad stars Giancarlo Esposito and Jonathan Banks, as well as Rob Huebel, Dan Harmon and Tyler, The Creator.
So July 27! Let's all poop ourselves to death!
