Seth MacFarlane, 'Ted' Writers Sulkin and Wild Land Live-Action Pilot With Fox


Seth MacFarlane is teaming with his partners in the raunchy teddy-bear comedy "Ted" for a new comedy -- this time on the small screen.

Fox has placed a put-pilot order with series penalty commitment for a new project from MacFarlane. The live-action comedy will be executive-produced by MacFarlane, and written and executive-produced by Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, who co-wrote "Ted" with MacFarlane.

The as-yet-untitled project will follow two successful guys in their 30's whose lives are turned upside-down when their nightmare dads unexpectedly move in with them.

Twentieth Century Fox Television will produce.

MacFarlane, of course, is no stranger to Fox -- the network's Sunday night Animation Domination block is largely made up of the MacFarlane fare "Family Guy," "American Dad" and "The Cleveland Show." Sulkin and Wellesley have both worked extensively on "Family Guy," while Sulkin has also provided voices for "The Cleveland Show."

he is so not funny, it's almost natural for Fox to sign him onto another tv show

This sounds like utter shit, but if I get to see some live action MacFarlane it will be worth it.

Let's hope it's as good as The Winner.

i only like seth for bringing this flawless character into my life:

roger is perfection

The only reason I watch American Dad, like Stewie is the only reason I watch Family Guy.
xevochic 23rd-Sep-2012 04:12 am (UTC)
When the show first premiered, I thought I was going to hate Roger. But seven seasons later and he still slays the fuck out of me. <3
sillycucumber 23rd-Sep-2012 07:32 pm (UTC)
I always rolled my eyes at people on here who said American Dad was better than Family Guy because I thought it was the same, but then I watched it, and it really is better. It's kind of like they learned from all the mistakes FG made. Roger is like the perfect mix of Stewie and Brian without all the bad parts.
skizzylizard 23rd-Sep-2012 12:03 am (UTC)
I hate this douchebag so much
chibik3r0 23rd-Sep-2012 12:03 am (UTC)
Okay, Fox. We get it. You like Seth McFarlane.

Also, American Dad >>> Family Guy >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Cleveland Show.
xevochic 23rd-Sep-2012 04:13 am (UTC)
American Dad >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Family Guy

And The Cleveland Show doesn't even exist, lbr
chibik3r0 23rd-Sep-2012 04:14 am (UTC)
I honestly don't know anyone who watches Cleveland Show...

OT: How do you send a private tweet to someone on twitter? I've never used twitter before lol
chibik3r0 23rd-Sep-2012 12:04 am (UTC)
Direct Messaging is the only way. And they have to follow you and you follow back.
theblackwidow 23rd-Sep-2012 12:15 am (UTC)
Ahhh. So I can't direct message someone if they don't follow me :(
chibik3r0 23rd-Sep-2012 12:16 am (UTC)
Nope. All you can do is @ them (if your Twitter account is unlocked) and hope they see it and reply.
theblackwidow 23rd-Sep-2012 12:18 am (UTC)
That sucks
evilgmbethy 23rd-Sep-2012 12:04 am (UTC)
man, South Park's criticism of Family Guy completely ruined Family Guy for me. I haven't watched it since tbh, because all the points they made about the show were spot on.
heulog 23rd-Sep-2012 12:06 am (UTC)
I'm being lazy-- what did they say?
anidee 23rd-Sep-2012 12:07 am (UTC)
manatees in tanks pick subjects and cut scenes at random
evilgmbethy 23rd-Sep-2012 12:08 am (UTC)
basically that the jokes are random and make no sense, and the writing is so lacking in cohesion that there's no thought or real effort put into it.
warriorholmes 23rd-Sep-2012 12:16 am (UTC)
and that the characters always say "Like that time that (insert random memory here)" and then they cut to a scene lol
warriorholmes 23rd-Sep-2012 12:07 am (UTC)

I watched Family Guy all the time but now I can't bring myself to do it anymore haha.
evilgmbethy 23rd-Sep-2012 12:08 am (UTC)
lol ikr

like I tried to watch it again after South Park dragged it, but I was like "wow, South Park was totally right about this show." lol
warriorholmes 23rd-Sep-2012 12:17 am (UTC)
lol right? sad2say

I'll check out, he'll probably cast Laura V in some role in it.

I want to have angry sex with Seth.
kimberlli_jv 23rd-Sep-2012 12:17 am (UTC)
I think I'm in the minority that actually thinks he's funny and that still enjoys Family Guy. I will admit that American Dad is a tad bit funnier just because it doesn't have those stupid ass cutaway gags. I even like The Cleveland Show.
annadraper 23rd-Sep-2012 12:19 am (UTC)
i love american dad to death, but it is 10 times more insane than family guy.
andres01234 23rd-Sep-2012 12:24 am (UTC)
American Dad >>> The Cleveland Show>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Family Guy
hahahey 23rd-Sep-2012 12:37 am (UTC)
switch family guy and Cleveland show and you'd be right
jjro 23rd-Sep-2012 12:36 am (UTC)
I agree with you, actually.

I have hated him and Family Guy for foreeeever and I'm so glad ONTD is starting to feel the same <3
xevochic 23rd-Sep-2012 04:24 am (UTC)
Seth is so ugly and super fucking hot at the same time (it's that fucking smile of his ugh), my mind just don't know what to do with him...until he speaks that is, then he is all hot again.

American Dad is the only good thing left that he is in. None of these "adult cartoons" short of South Park is funnier than American Dad. EOS

Family Guy is absolute shit now because all they do is repeat the jokes from earlier Family eps, stretch out one basic joke over one long unnecessary scene (Peter falls and holds his knee going "oooh" for two minutes), cutaway every other second, or toss in something like rape and go "LOL I'M BEING OFFENSIVE ABOUT RAPE!!!!! AREN'T I HILARIOUS???!!! :D" without making any real joke or statement.
toilandblood 23rd-Sep-2012 05:05 am (UTC)
he is not funny
starsxsonatas 23rd-Sep-2012 07:47 am (UTC)
ngl his episode of snl made me like him so much more. that lochte impression slayed me.
