It was recently announced that FOX has ordered a new 1-Hour, live-action comedic drama with Emmy-winner, Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy, Ted) to Create, Executive-Produce and Star in. The new series is targeted for the 2017-2018 television season.
“I’ve wanted to do something like this show ever since I was a kid, and the timing finally feels right,” said MacFarlane. “20th and FOX have been good to me for many years, and of course, Dana and Gary have been fantastic bosses and true pals, so it was a no-brainer to come to them with the project. I think this is gonna be something special.”
The Untitled Seth MacFarlane project “is a comedic drama set 300 years in the future. It follows the adventures of the Orville, a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar Fleet. Facing cosmic challenges from without and within, this motley crew of space explorers will boldly go where no comedic drama has gone before,” according to a FOX press release.
