Comedy Central has debuted a delightfully awkward promo for the upcoming animated cop comedy "Moonbeam City," starring Rob Lowe, Elizabeth Banks and Kate Mara.

Set in the 1980s, with the color palate to match, Lowe plays Dazzle Novak, a not-so-bright undercover cop who is always in search of a good time (when in fact he should be hunting down the bad guys). Banks co-stars as Novak's hard-ass boss, while Mara plays a young officer considered a rising star in Novak's same squad.

Although Novak bears a striking resemblance to Sterling Archer, in both appearance and demeanor, Archer's skill level in the field supersedes Novak's skill set by more than a mile. To Novak's advantage, though? An awesome stripper name. 

Complete with a ripe neon landscape and a glorious, overproduced synth track, "Moonbeam City" is an absurdist television fanatic's wet dream. The show is slated to premiere in 2015.
