An internet webcomic set up by two kids is reportedly set to be the first show to take part in Fox's new animated late-night Saturday programming block. Here's what Vulture reports:
Fox has ordered six fifteen-minute episodes of the show and plans to debut it early next year as part of its previously announced late-night Saturday animation block. The network expects to air about an hour of first-run animation programming, including a number of recurring series and a slew of animated shorts. Add in some acquired animation, and Fox hopes to have a 90-minute block of programming to air opposite Saturday Night Live by sometime next year. ADHD properties will also be widely available on digital platforms.
Even more amazing is the webcomic's creators. Written by a five-year-old (Malachai Nicolle) and drawn by his 7-year-old big brother (Ethan Nicolle), Axe Cop is about the adventures of a police officer who prefers to wield an axe in battle. So you know this series is going to be awesome!
