Moonbeam City (Series Premiere) – 10:30 p.m. ET/PT
Moonbeam City is an absurdist, retro-futuristic ’80s cop extravaganza. Comedy Central’s new animated series follows Dazzle Novak (voiced by Rob Lowe), a handsome, idiotic detective who commits more crimes than most criminals. His sexy, tyrannical chief Pizzaz Miller (Elizabeth Banks) won’t get off his back. His obnoxious rival Rad Cunningham (Will Forte) will stop at nothing to destroy him. Dazzle must team up with the city’s only competent police officer, Chrysalis Tate (Kate Mara), to protect their beloved, neon-soaked metropolis.
WED. SEPTEMBER 23:
TripTank (Season Two Premiere) – 11:00 p.m. ET/PT
TripTank showcases a wide range of fast-paced, hard-hitting animated comedy shorts presented in an anthology style, weaving together stand-alone and recurring narrative pieces. Executive produced by ShadowMachine’s Alex Bulkley and Corey Campodonico, season two takes things just a little bit further through a variety of mind-bending animation styles, featuring a broad range of formats including 2D, stop-motion and CGI. Season one favorites ‘Suck It Gary,’ ‘Ricky the Rocketship,’ ‘Bethiffer,’ ‘Jeff & Some Aliens’ and ‘Animal Hitman’ are coming back for more, and season two will introduce ‘Rest Assured,’ created by Mike Clattenberg (Black Jesus), among hundreds of other animated shorts. Voice talent this season includes Amy Schumer, Britanny Snow, Margaret Cho, Jemaine Clement, David Cross, Andrew Dice Clay, Key & Peele, Kristen Johnston, Cheryl Hines, Nick Swardson and Niecy Nash.
