Fox to Adapt Axe Cop


Fox to Adapt Axe Cop

According to a recent report by Vulture.com, Fox has just greenlit an animated adaptation of Axe Cop, which is a comic book franchise borne out of the imagination of seven year old Malachai Nicolle and his chief illustrator, older brother Ethan. The comic tells the story of an earnest police officer who uses a firefighter’s axe as his weapon, while being aided by a flute sidekick and a T-Rex pet.

Axe Cop has the honor of being the first official project to be put into development by Fox’s alternative animation production unit, Animation Domination HD, which is spearheaded by Adult Swim alumnus Nick Weidenfield. Fox plans to debut the series in early 2013, and has already ordered 6 x 15 minute episodes. Axe Cop will most likely become part of Fox’s late night Saturday Animation Block, due to the subject matter.

Weidenfeld told Vulture that he is currently looking for a showrunner who “has a good idea of how to adapt Axe Cop without ruining what’s great about a story whose origins hail from the mind of a 5 year old.”
