It would appear that Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, American Dad, Ted and more, likes sleeping as little as I do. To prove it, he has pitched and gotten approval for a new series for FOX. Unlike his current series, this one will be live-action instead of animated. Apparently the fun of producing Ted inspired him to try a long-term live-action project.
He will be working with long-time MacFarlane writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild, who will write and executive produce the project with MacFarlane. The pair has been working on Family Guy since 2005, and are currently executive producers on that series as well. They were also co-writers on Ted, so they have certainly proven themselves to take on this project.
So, what is the series about? It revolves around 2 30-something, successful guys whose father ends up living with them. This is the kind of scenario that MacFarlane and team thrive on, and FOX knows it. For now, FOX has green-lit a put pilot for a multi-cam series for now, but it isn't often that a pilot pitched by MacFarlane isn't picked up, so we can probably expect to see this series next season.
So, do you think Seth MacFarlane can pull off a live-action television series or should he stick to animation? Let us know in the comments.
