Plot Synopsis

ANIMAL CONTROL is a half-hour workplace comedy 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. Frank is 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, an optimistic rookie Animal Control officer. They both report into their sweet-natured and endearingly awkward boss Emily Price. Amit Patel and Victoria Sands are also partners in the Animal Control office -- though they could not be more opposite. Rounding out the precinct is veterinarian Dr. Summers, receptionist Dolores Stubb, and Templeton Dudge, an Animal Control officer from a neighboring precinct with a real chip on his shoulder.
On Thursday, May 4, 2023 at 9pm ET/PT, FOX premiered "Unicorns and Mountain Lions," the season finale of ANIMAL CONTROL. When the precinct's beloved mountain lion C-38 dies, Frank takes it especially hard. Shred tries to break up with Camilla before he ruins his chances with Emily.
