Louis CK Animated Series ‘The Cops’ Shut Down by TBS

Cartoon was previously placed on hiatus at Turner comedy network

TBS has sent Louis CK’s “The Cops” into early retirement.

The animated series, which was co-created by and set to co-star CK and Albert Brooks as two Los Angeles patrolmen, was ordered straight-to-series by the Turner network in January 2017. It was slated to premiere this year — but not anymore.

In November, “The Cops” was “suspended until further review” by the Turner cable channel. FX Productions — the company behind “The Cops” — cut ties with CK after the stand-up comedian was accused of sexual misconduct by five women.

CK copped to the allegations shortly after a New York Times investigation exposed his lewd behavior.

“These stories are true,” the “Louie” star said back then.

“At the time, I said to myself that what I did was okay because I never showed a woman my d– without asking first, which is also true,” he continued. “But what I learned later in life, too late, is that when you have power over another person, asking them to look at your d— isn’t a question. It’s a predicament for them. The power I had over these women is that they admired me. And I wielded that power irresponsibly.”
