Fox adds ‘Murder Police’ to Sunday comedy slate

Fox broadcast network has bought its first Sunday animation series in about two years, announcing Tuesday the pick-up of “Murder Police.”

As described by Fox, “Murder Police” follows a “dedicated but inept” detective and his colleagues which, Fox entertainment chairman Kevin Reilly insists, is “a really fresh take on law enforcement that we’ve never seen before,” adding “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.”

Last time Fox ordered a new animated comedy for its Sunday lineup was in fall of ’10 when the network made a push with a revamp of “Napoleon Dynamite” and Jonah Hill’s “Allen Gregory.”

Both gone.

Former “Family Guy” exec producer David Goodman (who also exec produced “Allen Gregory”) is exec producing “Murder Police,” with Jason Ruiz.

The cast of characters in “Murder Police” includes an inept detective, and his partner, who can’t interrogate a suspect without beating him up. Among those providing voices for the show are Chi McBride, Penny Marshall,  Peter Atencio, and Ruiz, among others. The series is produced at Bento Box Animation — home of Comedy Central’s “Brickleberry.”
