"Deadpool" Sequel in Motion, Screenwriters to Return
Although the animated adaptation of Axe Cop, the hit webcomic by brothers Malachai Nicolle and Ethan Nicolle, doesn’t premiere for more than six months — July 27, to be exact! — Fox is offering a taste of what we can expect from the show in the form of another installment of “Ask Axe Cop.”
In the clip, which you can watch below, young Keith asks, “Would you ever consider running for president? And if so, what would your platform be?” The answer, as delivered by Nick Offerman — yes, in case you missed it, Ron Swanson of Parks and Recreation voices Axe Cop — is as funny as you might expect.
Part of Fox’s new Animation Domination High-Def late-night programming block, Axe Cop also features the voice talents of Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino and Peter Serafinowicz. ADHD premieres Saturday, July 27 at 11 p.m. ET/PT.
Fox has announced a July 27 television premiere for Axe Cop, based on the hit webcomic by brothers Malachai Nicolle (who was 5 when it launched in 2009) and Ethan Nicolle (28), as part of the network’s new Adult Swim-style Saturday-night animated programming block ADHD.
Axe Cop, which follows the adventures of the title character and his loyal partner Flute Cop as they deliver their brand of vigilante justice, features the voice talents of Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally, Patton Oswalt, Ken Marino and Peter Serafinowicz. The show is joined in the 90-minute block by High School USA!, from Community writer/actor Dino Stamatopoulos, and an untitled project from twin comedians Kenny and Keith Lucas.
Teasing Axe Cop in October, Fox released a Halloween-themed test clip based on the comic’s “Ask Axe Cop” feature. You can watch it below. ADHD (Animation Domination High-Def) premieres Saturday, July 27 at 11 p.m. ET/PT on Fox.
