Louis CK doing animated show The Cops with Simpsons writer Greg Daniels

Louis C.K. is no stranger to animation, as he recently did the voice of a little dog named Max in the recent SECRET LIFE OF PETS film. It seems he got the cartoon bug, as he's now developing an animated series for TBS about cops called (fittingly enough) THE COPS, with former SIMPSONS writer Greg Daniels (and co-creator of PARKS AND RECREATION, where Louis C.K. coincidentally also played a cop).

But that's not all! It seems that another SIMPSONS alumni - none-other-than Hank Scorpio himself, Albert Brooks - has been cast as C.K.'s co-star, where they'll both play police officers "dead-panning their way through their efforts to protect and serve."

TBS Executive Brett Weitz had this to say about the series:

We have made the bold decision to put Louis C.K., Albert Brooks, and Greg Daniels at the forefront of what is going to be a serious push into animated comedy for TBS in 2018. I only hope these newbies know what they’re doing.

I don't think we need to hope (I'm also getting the sense he was being tongue-in-cheek). 

No official release date confirmed, but THE COPS should be coming out sometime in 2018.

Extra Tidbit: Besides PARKS AND RECREATION, Louis C.K. also played in cop (or rather a security guard) in ROLE MODELS.
