Seth Macfarlane Is Heading Into Space

Fox has announced, it will launch a new science-fiction TV series, called the "The Orville." The show will star funny man executive producer and actor Seth MacFarlane ("Family Guy," "Ted") as the commander of the titular starship. Adrianne Palicki ("Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.") will portray MacFarlane's executive officer — and ex-wife — with a ragtag crew rounding out the cast. Think "Galaxy Quest" meets "Family Guy," and you're on the right track.

"'The Orville' is a live-action, one-hour, ensemble comedic drama set 400 years in the future that follows the adventures of The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship, as its crew, both human and alien, face the wonders and dangers of outer space, while also dealing with the familiar, often humorous problems of everyday life,"

"The Orville" is the brainchild of Seth MacFarlane and director Jon Favreau ("The Jungle Book," "Iron Man").
