It looks like Fox is hungry for more of its new adult animated toons, Axe Cop and High School USA. The network has increased its orders for each show from the original six to 12 quarter-hour episodes. The shows scored over 1.5 million viewers during the new Animation Domination High Def block on Saturday, July 27.
“I thought to roll out 12 gives us a little more of an anchor,” Nick Weidenfeld, the network’s head of Animation Domination HD, told The Futon Critic. “We’re just starting. It’s also way better for production because we can get invested in those shows.”
In January, AC and HSUSA will be joined by Golan the Insatiable and Lucas Bros. Moving Co., with two additional unannounced series set to debut in April.
