Fox’s Late Night ‘Animation Domination High-Def’ Block To Receive Primetime Preview

Animation Domination High-Def, Fox’s late-night counterpart to their successful Sunday Animation Domination block, is set to debut Saturday, July 27th at 11PM, but the network has announced they’ll be airing a special primetime preview of the quirky line-up Sunday, July 21st at 9:30PM to entice fans to stay up late.

The preview will feature the debut episodes of Axe Cop and High School USA!. In Axe Cop “Night Mission: Stealing Friends Back,” the titular crime fighter (Nick Offerman) will embark on a night mission with his partner Flute Cop (Ken Marino) and sidekicks Grey Diamond (guest voice Rob Heubel), Army Chihuahua (guest voice Giancarlo Esposito) and Liborg (guest voice Tyler, the Creator) to rescue Bat Warthog Man’s (guest voice Vincent Kartheiser) friends. The quarter-hour installment of Axe Cop will be followed by High School USA!‘s “Bullies,” which will find the ultra-positive teen Marsh Merriwether’s (Kartheiser) best friend accused of bullying while Cassandra (Mandy Moore) gets ready for the “It Gets Better After High School” high school dance.

Created and written by Malachai Nicolle (age five) and his brother, Ethan Nicolle (age 30), Axe Cop follows the adventures of a cop/superhero who “operating on only two minutes of sleep a night and is fueled by a diet consisting solely of birthday cake.” Alongside Flute Cop he battles an impressive line-up of bad guys including a version of Hitler with his mind set on raising an army of zombies. Meanwhile, High School USA! focuses on a group of upbeat millennial students led by Merriwether.

Animation Domination High-Def will officially launch Saturday, July 27th at 11PM with all-new installments of Axe Cop (11:00-11:15 PM ET/PT) and High School USA! (11:15-11:30 PM ET/PT) followed by encore presentations of the previous week’s quarter-hour series beginning at 11:30 PM ET/PT. The block will be rounded out by an episode of The Cleveland Show at midnight.
