Fox orders animated comedy about inept cops
Fox has ordered 13 episodes of a new animated comedy dubbed Murder Police, which the net says follows a “dedicated, but inept detective and his colleagues – some perverted, some corrupt, some just plain lazy – in a twisted city precinct.” The series from David A. Goodman (Family Guy) and Jason Ruiz will bow sometime during the 2013-14 season.
“David and Jason came to us with a really fresh take on law enforcement that we’ve never seen before,” said Fox Entertainment Chairman Kevin Reilly in a statement. “With Murder Police, these guys are taking a staple genre of television – the cop show – and turning it on its head by pushing the warped comedic boundaries that only animation can offer. It’s the kind of show our Animation Domination fans will absolutely love, and I can’t wait to introduce it next season.”
Ruiz will voice Officer Manuel Sanchez. Other voices will be provided by Will Sasso (The Three Stooges), Chi McBride (Human Target), Horatio Sanz (Saturday Night Live) and Penny Marshall (Laverne & Shirley).
