The Seth Macfarlane animation empire is growing a little bigger, as the new comedy Bordertown will make its way to Fox in 2016. Here's what we thought of it.
Seth MacFarlane’s busy making the rounds in support of Ted 2, and last night he popped up on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon,Anyone who knows Seth MacFarlane knows the comedian is pretty good with impressions, but his Liam Neeson is totally spot-on. Check it out.
It’s quite possible that no talk show host has nearly as much fun doing their job as Graham Norton. On a recent show he had both 80’s pop queen Cyndi Lauper and Family Guy creator and man of many voices, Seth Macfarlane as guests. So there’s really only one thing to do, have the characters from Family Guy sing selections from Cyndi Lauper’s Greatest Hits.
When you’re sharing the screen with the formidable Sir Patrick Stewart, you’d better be up to the challenge. Fortunately, Jacki Weaver has the chutzpah for such a task, and she’ll be his co-lead on the upcoming Starz comedy Blunt Talk, created by Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) and Jonathan Ames (Bored to Death).
Later this month, Family Guy starts its 13th Season later this month with a Simpsons crossover episode. And now we all finally answer that age-old question, “What would it look like if Matt Groening and Seth MacFarlane drew each other?”
LeVar Burton's Reading Rainbow Kickstarter Campaign has already been an enormous success. The Star Trek star and former Reading Rainbow host reached out to fans to help him bring an updated Reading Rainbow program back to the public and the fans responded and then some, helping the campaign reach its goal within the first day of the campaign.
In Fox's recent onslaught of upcoming promos, the network hasn’t forgotten that a lot of its longest-lasting bread and butter has been with the most colorful type of series, and they're now starting to promote the culturally satirical series Bordertown, which will jump the fence into primetime next year.
20 years after Captain Jean-Luc Picard was beamed off the air, Stewart is returning to American television and teaming up with Seth MacFarlane and Bored to Death creator/author Jonathan Ames for the comedy series Blunt Talk, which has already been secured by Starz in a straight-to-series order.
American Dad’s move to TBS and The Cleveland Show’s cancellation last spring isn’t an indication that Fox is tiring of Seth MacFarlane’s animated comedies. In fact, it seems they may have found the new comedy to fill the vacancy in their Sunday night line-up next season. The network announced today that they’ve ordered an animated comedy series called Bordertown from Family Guy’s Mark Hentemann and Seth MacFarlane.
A black screen bleeds into images of the planets and of nature on Earth before cutting into images of shielded spaceships and levitating children. A few bits of animation are interposed between shots of Earth in places most of us have only seen through television outlets. Nary a word is spoken during the trailer, but its enough to get us excited about Fox’s Cosmos reboot
No matter which character he will play, MacFarlane should be a good fit for Futurama’s Season 7, which will be chock full of other guest stars, as well. Notably MacFarlane’s ex-girlfriend and Game of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is set to how up in the show’s penultimate episode as a flower stand owner who may have an unlikely romance with Zoidberg. Other guest stars include Larry Bird, George Takei, Adam West and more.
Downton Abbey may be between seasons right now, but out of sight definitely doesn't mean out of mind. Earlier today we shared Sean Combs' Funny or Die video, and this Sunday night, the series will be acknowledged in the double-episode season finale of The Simpsons. First, we have this video, which Fox shared today and gives us a look at Downton Abbey's opening credits, Simpsons-style. Simpton Abbey! Looks like Homer had some trouble with that old-fashioned razor.
Here's one for the Seth MacFarlane fans. Or Seth Green fans. (Or both). Fox may not offer much in the way of multi-camera comedies these days, but the network has no shortage of MacFarlane. So it should be interesting to see how Dads does on Tuesday nights, paired with fellow newcomer Brooklyn Nine-Nine. As the trailer reveals, this new comedy, which comes from Ted team focuses on the relationship two guys have with their fathers.
Fox announced their 2013-2014 lineup this morning, along with the planned schedule, which sets up new comedies on Tuesday nights and adds a number of other new series to the schedule, along with the returning shows. Among the new series is J.J. Abrams' sci-fi cop series Almost Human, Seth MacFarlane's new live-action comedy Dads and new animated comedy Murder Police.
When we learned that Seth MacFarlane was going to be lending his vocal talents to The Simpsons with a guest spot on the show, word was that his voice appearance wouldn't take place until the Season 25 premiere next fall, however it's looking like we'll be hearing the Family Guy creator and voice actor's voice on The Simpsons much sooner than that. Fox announced today that MacFarlane will guest-voice in the two-part season finale.
