Fox is expanding its animation lineup with a new comedy, Murder Police. The network’s greenlit the series with a 13 episode initial order and they anticipate debuting the new animated series during the 2013-14 season.
David A Goodman (Family Guy) and Jason Ruiz created and wrote Murder Police, with Goodman serving as executive producer and Ruiz as co-executive producer.
Announcing the series, Kevin Reilly, Chairman of Entertainment, Fox Broadcasting Company, stated: “David and Jason came to us with a really fresh take on law enforcement that we’ve never seen before. With Murder Police, 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. It’s the kind of show our Animation Domination fans will absolutely love, and I can’t wait to introduce it next season.”
MANUEL SANCHEZ (voiced by co-creator Ruiz) aspires to be a good cop, but his efforts to solve crimes are constantly put in jeopardy by his own clumsiness and the incompetence of his fellow detectives, including his partner, TOMMY MARGARETTI (Will Sasso), a tough, rule-breaking “bad cop” who can’t interrogate a suspect without beating him up.
Voice actors on the pilot include Jason Ruiz as MANUEL and MARIO SANCHEZ, Will Sasso as TOMMY MARGARETTI, Chi McBride as RANDALL HICKOX, Horatio Sanz as DONEL, Penny Marshall as SYLVIA GOLDENBERG, Peter Atencio as CAPTAIN JOHN RUSHOUR and Justina Machado as ROSA SANCHEZ.
