It’s like the TV programming version of Minority Report: Fox is trying to stop a flop before it happens.
The network has axed plans to air previously announced 13-episode animated series Murder Police, which starred the voice talent of Wilmer Valderrama, Jane Lynch, Will Sasso and Chi McBride.
Fox reportedly wasn’t thrilled with the quality of the episodes coming in and cut Murder Police from its midseason Sunday night schedule. Studio 20th Century Fox Television plans to shop the project to cable. Fox recently renewed long-running hit The Simpsons for a 26th season, while American Dad is set to depart for TBS.
