Created and executive produced by Scott Gairdner (CONAN, Funny Or Die), this 10-episode, 30-minute series, which takes inspiration from the gritty crime dramas of the 80s, features an all-star lineup of voice talent led by Rob Lowe (PARKS AND RECREATION), Elizabeth Banks (WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER), Will Forte (LAST MAN ON EARTH), and Kate Mara (HOUSE OF CARDS).
Lowe stars as Dazzle Novak, a detective in America’s most fluorescent metropolis, whose desire to serve is second only to his nonstop sex drive. But with Chief Pizzaz Miller (Banks) cramping his style, and his rival Rad Cunningham (Forte) undermining him at every turn, he may have to face the (very synthy) music, and do some actual police work. Dazzle must team up with the city’s only competent police officer, Chrysalis Tate (Mara), to protect their beloved, neon-soaked city. To watch a clip of the premiere click here.

Guest voice talent featured throughout the season include: Powers Boothe (Sin City), Kate McKinnon (SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE), Canadian Catherine O’Hara (SCHITT’S CREEK), Andy Richter (CONAN), Susan Sarandon (The Lovely Bones), Molly Shannon (WET HOT AMERICAN SUMMER), Paul F. Tompkins (Anchorman), Patrick Warburton (RULES OF ENGAGEMENT), and Adam West (BATMAN).
In the premiere episode “Mall Hath No Fury,” airing Wednesday, Sept. 16 at 10:30 p.m. ET on Much, a new crime lord terrorizes Moonbeam City, but Dazzle Novak is more concerned with losing his “#1 Cop” mug to annoying rival Rad Cunningham. Gold chains, shoulder pads, and 80s music fill the air as they try to keep the city in order and safe from evil.
