AXE COP Animated Series Coming to Fox in July


One of the joys of working here at TVWriter™ has been bopping around the web discovering things like AXE COP, a web comic created by Malachai Nicolle, who at the time was a 5 year old boy living in Washington state, and illustrated by his almost-a-quarter-century-older brother Ethan.

AXE COP is a delightful celebration of well-intended mayhem, and it’s also become very, very popular. So popular, in fact, that Fox Network bought the rights, did the usual development thing, and, voila! at the riope old age of7, Malachai Nicolle is now the creator of a TV series. AXE COP, the TV series debuts July 27, featuring the voices of Nick Offerman, Megan Mullally (aha!), Patton Oswalt, and even COMMUNITY creator Dan Harmon.

Will it work? We smell a cult classic here at the very least. Stay tuned, doods. And, while you’re waiting, watch the damn clip:

Oh, and don’t forget: This could’ve been an article about you. Still could be if you get off your duff and write/draw/shoot that project you’ve been daydreaming about for years!

AXE COP is coming to TV

For those who are so damn out of it you inspire nothing but contempt – not any of our TVWriter™ regulars, we’re sure, but those, erm, other guys who sometimes come around – AXE COP is a wild, woolly, fun, in, hip, and trendy online comic strip series, possibly the best one there is, “written,” as the site says, “by a 5 year old and illustrated by his 29 year old brother.” Family dynamics aside, it’s awesome.

AXE COP is also a new cartoon series scheduled to appear on Fox next summer.  Which is why we’re so happy about presenting this first clip we just found. (See, we’re smiling cuz there’s gonna be more. So much MORE!!!)

That’s right. A 5-year-old has sold his own TV series to a major player. Think about that whenever you’re feeling to good about yourself. I know I will.
