Murder Police: Animated Series Dumped by FOX

murder police FOX won’t be airing Murder Police after all. The animated series had been expected to debut later this season and run on Sunday nights as part of the network’s Animation Domination block of programming.

According to TV Guide, executives weren’t happy with early cuts of the show and have now cancelled plans to air the series. FOX ordered 13 episodes but apparently only bits and pieces have been finished thus far. The show’s producer, 20th Century Fox TV, plans to complete the episodes and shop it to cable stations.

Murder Police revolves around an inept detective Donel (Wilmer Valderrama) and his misfit co-workers. The rest of the voice cast includes Jane Lynch, Will Sasso, Chi McBride, Peter Atencio, Justina Machado, and Jason Ruiz.

    @TVseriesfinale admin – actually deadline reports that not one if the 13 episodes were actually produced but of course VoiceOver work was completed and some animation was completed on a few of the episodes.

    Even if the show doesn’t get picked up by another network, there aren’t any episodes anyway.
