Seth MacFarlane to Star in Live Action Show

FOX and Seth MacFarlane are teaming up once again, only this time for a live action dramedy (comedy-drama) series. FOX has ordered 13 episodes of the show, which was created by and will star Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane. MacFarlane wrote the pilot episode, of the yet to be titled show. It is set 300 years in the future and will include a band of explorers, in their less than top of the line ship, Orville. MacFarlane has stated that he wanted to do something like this since he was young, and that “the timing finally feels right”. There are hopes that the show will make it for the 2017-2018 season. There is little word on the show beyond that, and no word if this will effect Family Guy at all. While people might have mixed feelings about MacFarlane, we here at GNU are actually curious to see where this project goes. MacFarlane already tackled live action with his film, A Million Ways to Die in the West, and we’re big fans of sci-fi. This could be the perfect blend, to bring something fresh to FOX and from MacFarlane himself. We will bring you more news as it becomes available.
