9. TV: The Premiere of High School USA!
As part of Fox’s new Animation Domination High-Def, the network is rolling out two new animated series: Axe Cop and High School USA! Fans of Parks and Rec will be drawn to the badass crime fighter Axe Cop (voiced by Nick Offerman, aka Parks’ Ron Swanson) and his band of vigilante sidekicks (our favorite is Giancarlo Esposito as Army Chihuaha). And while it has some fun queer casting like Megan Mullally, we’re most excited about High School USA!, a new Archie-style comic series in which two girls lez out in episode one. High School follows a group of super-positive Millennial students confronting all the unique challenges of growing up in a modern world, like cyber-bullying and embarrassing sexting incidents. In the first episode, “Bullies,” teen Marsh learns a valuable lessen about bullying and then Cassandra (voiced by Mandy Moore) gets ready for the “It Gets Better After High School” dance. The show premieres on Fox Sunday, July 21 at 9:30/8:30 p.m. Central.
