TBS Officially Kills Louis C.K.’s ‘Cops’

Call was expected after network put production on hiatus in November after the comic confessed to sexual misconduct.

TBS has canceled production of Cops, an animated series created by and starring the voice of comic Louis C.K., who has admitted to sexual misconduct.

TBS has officially pulled the plug on Cops, an animated series created by disgraced comedian Louis C.K. and Albert Brooks.

According to Deadline, the network had been expected to end production, having put it on hiatus in November after Louis C.K. admitted truth in accusations of sexual misconduct. The New York Times had reported that the stand-up comic, writer and actor had exposed himself and masturbated in front of women.

The series had been given a 10-episode order in early 2017, with plans for the show to premiere this year. The show was to star Brooks and C.K. as Los Angeles cops who frequently failed to succeed in their jobs or personal lives.

Scripts were still in the works and animation was underway on the series when it was put on hold. Producers FX and FX Productions also ended their overall deal with C.K. and his Pig Newton production shingle.
