Exclusive: I’ve learned that Fox is giving a 13-episode series order to Murder Police, an animated comedy from former Family Guy executive producer/co-showrunner David Goodman and Jason Ruiz. The show follows a dedicated but inept detective and his partner in a twisted city precinct as they try to solve serious crimes. Goodman and Ruiz created and wrote the project, originally picked up by the network as a presentation. Goodman serves as executive producer; Ruiz as co-executive producer. Murder Police is produced at Bento Box Animation for 20th Century Fox TV. Murder Police marks Fox’s first animated series order in more than two years — since the October 2010 pickup of Jonah Hill’s Allen Gregory for 7 episodes (with Goodman as executive producer/showrunner), and Napoleon Dynamite for 6. Neither of the two were renewed for a second season. Fox has been looking to bring new blood to its aging Sunday animated comedy block. »
