Seth MacFarlane is in the process of creating a new dramatic comedy series that will take place in 24th century space. MacFarlane, best known for his hit show Family Guy will also star in, and be the executive producer for the show. Fox has given the greenlight on 13 episodes of the so far unnamed series which will air in the 2017-2018 season.
The new series will take place 300 years in the future and follow Orville, a ship that’s seen better days in the Earth’s Interstellar fleet. MacFarlane was quoted saying “I’ve wanted to do something like this show ever since I was a kid, and the timing finally feels right.”
MacFarlane is known for pushing the boundaries on pretty much everything he is part of. Anyone who has seen his shows like Family Guy or American Dad, or his big screen works such as Ted or A Million Ways to Die in the West, knows that he has a very loud, crude and hilarious presence both in front of, and behind the camera.
I can’t wait to see what this new futuristic, intergalactic gem will bring. We will keep you informed as more information arises. So, what do you think? Are you a fan of Seth MacFarlane’s work?
