Today is the day… a little comic relief is here for animal control officers around the country! NACA is thrilled to be partnering up with @ComedyClubFox as we get ready to show the world the amazing, hard-working, dedicated, and yes, sometimes funny work of animal control!! Don’t miss the premiere of Animal Control TONIGHT at 9 PM ET…we know we’ll be watching!

But before the show airs…FOX Entertainment wanted to give thanks to the #realheroes!

Don’t forget to follow us on our socials (links are all down below) for more surprise content in the future and clips from the show!

And in case you haven’t heard the exciting news:

FOX Entertainment’s first wholly owned live-action comedy, Animal Control is an all-new single-camera workplace series that follows a group of local Animal Control workers whose lives are complicated by the fact that animals are simple, but humans are not. Joel McHale (Community) stars as FRANK, an opinionated, eccentric Animal Control officer who may not have gone to college, but is still the most well-read person in the room. A former cop, Frank tried to expose corruption in his department, but his efforts got him fired, which may explain why he’s so cynical and curmudgeonly. He has an almost superhuman ability to understand animals. Humans…not so much. Frank is assigned a new partner, FRED “SHRED” TAYLOR (newcomer Michael Rowland), an optimistic rookie who used to be a professional snowboarder. They both report into their sweet-natured and endearingly awkward boss, Emily Price (Vella Lovell, Mr. Mayor). Amit Patel (Ravi Patel, Master of None), an overwhelmed family man and Victoria Sands (Grace Palmer, Shortland Street), a free spirit, also are partners and great friends, even though their personal lives could not be more different. Rounding out the precinct is veterinarian Dr. Summers (Alvina August, The Boys), receptionist Dolores Stubb (Kelli Ogmundson, Cavendish) and Templeton Dudge (Gerry Dee, Mr. D), an Animal Control officer from a neighboring precinct with a real chip on his shoulder.

Animal Control is produced by FOX Entertainment Studios and executive-produced by Bob Fisher (Wedding Crashers, Sirens, The Moodys), Rob Greenberg (Frasier, How I Met Your Mother, The Moodys), Dan Sterling (Long Shot, The Interview, Girls, The Office, King of the Hill), Tad Quill (Scrubs, The Moodys) and McHale.
