Fox preparing live-action Seth MacFarlane comedy


Fox, slowly but surely, is becoming the Seth MacFarlane network. The channel airs Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show already and would probably eagerly sign on for anything MacFarlane offers up to them.

Case in point, the network has give a put-pilot commitment in place for a new live-action comedy from MacFarlane and his co-writers of Ted.

The untitled comedy will be written and executive produced by Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild with MacFarlane on board as an executive producer.

The show, a single-camera comedy, will revolve around two successful guys in their early 30s and the huge change that comes when their crazy fathers move back in with them, unexpectedly.

The writers have a long standing relationship with MacFarlane, as they have written and voiced characters on Family Guy and The Cleveland Show. MacFarlane previously had a live-action small-screen show in 2007's The Winner.

Fox is also still working out details on MacFarlane's The Flintstone's reboot. In addition to that, he also is attempting to reboot Carl Sagan's Cosmo with Fox. Does he own shares in the company yet? He should be made a full partner already.

He also is considering a sequel to Ted, which was an unexpected smash hit at the box office this summer.

Nice work if you can get it.
