Moonbeam City

This past weekend at San Diego Comic-Con, Comedy Central presented a rad Moonbeam City panel featuring series star and Producer Rob Lowe, series co-star Will Forte, series creator and Executive Producer Scott Gairdner, Executive Producer Tommy Blacha and Executive Producer Richie Schwartz. Check out the trailer of this 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. Moonbeam City premieres on Wednesday, September 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET/PT following the 19th season premiere of South Park.
