Comedy Central Orders Animated Series 'Golden Axe' Starring Matthew Rhys and Danny Pudi

Comedy Central has today given a series order to the original animated series Golden Axe based on the popular Sega video game series. The first season will produce 10 episodes.

In a hilarious and loving homage to the video game, the series will follow veteran warriors Ax Battler, Tyris Flare and Gilius Thunderhead as they once again battle to save Yuria from the evil giant Death Adder who just won't seem to stay dead. Fortunately, this time they have the inexperienced and underprepared Hampton Squib on their side.

The voice cast will feature Matthew Rhys as Gilius Thunderhead; Danny Pudi as Hampton Squib; Lisa Gilroy as Tyris Flare; Liam McIntyre as Ax Battler; and Carl Tart as Chronos "Evil" Lait.

Mike McMahan and Joe Chandler developed the series. They will executive produce with Haruki Satomi, Shuji Utsumi, Toru Nakahara, Neal H. Moritz, Pavun Shetty, Toby Ascher, Chris Prynoski, Shannon Prynoski, Antonio Canobbio and Ben Kalina. CBS' Eye Animation Productions, Sony Pictures Television and Original Film will produce.
