Local comic to be featured in new edgy cartoon series

Longtime Minnesota standup Mary Mack tapped to star in new show for Fox.

Those of us who have waited patiently for local comic Mary Mack to finally get her big break may not have to wait much longer.

The outstanding local standup has been cast as the voice of a 9-year-old girl with a monster as a best friend in "Golan the Insatiable," a cartoon series that will be part of Fox's "Animation Domination High-Def" block of 15-minute shorts that will air 10-11:30 p.m. Friday nights, starting July 27.

A Fox spokesperson said that "Golan" will not be one of the first shorts to be featured. Mack, who started working on the project last week, believes it may bow in September.

Minnesota native Joshua Miller wrote the pilot script.

"It's not for kids," Mack said this week. "It's really inappropriate language with a lot of words I did not want to say."

Mack described her character as a goth kid who is constantly trying to poison the other kids at school.

More on the project when it goes closer to the premiere.
