If you haven’t read Axe Cop yet, do yourself a favor and Google it now, because it’s absolutely hilarious. The basic concept behind it is that it’s a comic written by a five-year-old kid (Malachai Nicolle) and drawn by his 29-year-old comic artist brother (Ethan Nicolle). So basically, imagine a professional cartoon where everything and everyone sounds like a kindergartener. It’s really funny. Anyway, FOX seems to think the same way, and they’re going to adapt it into a series for their Sunday animation block. Yay! Via Deadline:
FOX has set the first piece in its Animation Domination HD block, which is slated to launch in the 11 PM-12:30 AM Saturday night time slot in the first quarter of 2013. Animation Domination HD, the new animation unit launched by FOX in January to generate programming for the new block and various digital platforms, has acquired the rights to the hit online comic Axe Cop. The division, headed by Nick Weidenfeld, has given an order of six quarter-hour episodes to an animated version of the comic, which has been put in development and is looking for a showrunner.
I love this, I really do. Mostly because I know that a show that is literally written by a kid who probably can’t even do long division yet will still be funnier than The Cleveland Show and Allen Gregory. I’m sorry, I tried liking those shows, but they were both just … no. No forever to both of them.
