New Saturday night Fox animation block shows major potential

Fox just announced a new Saturday night animation block set to launch in early 2013. It's called Animation Domination HD (I bet the execs stayed up late to come up with a title that brilliant) and it's headed by Nick Weidenfeld, who used to head up Adult Swim. Except, based on the info currently available, it looks like ADHD will kick AS in the ass. Why, you ask? The first confirmed show is Axe Cop: The Animated Series. You read that correctly. It's been greenlit for six 15-minute episodes, with the intention to expand the show to a half hour. But that's not all! Erin "Egoraptor" Hanson has also been hired to create a series of shorts for the block! Now let's just hope the block stays on for more than two weeks. This is Fox we're talking about here.
