Comic-Con 2017: Seth MacFarlane Debuts his new Show The Orville

Seth MacFarlane (Family Guy) is adding to his TV Empire with new show The ORVILLE. The trailer for the new sci-fi comedy made its debut at Comic-Con. The trailer looks like the new show is going to provide the same humor that people have come to expect from MacFarlane.

The new show will star MacFarlane as the Captain of the Orville, Ed Mercer, along with Adrianne Palicki (Friday Night Lights) who will play Mercer’s ex-wife. Alongside will be Scott Grimes (American Dad!), Penny Johnson Jerald (Castle), Peter Macon (Shameless), Mark Jackson (That Royal Today), J. Lee (The Cleveland Show), and Halston Sage (Neighbors). Norm Macdonald (Saturday Night Live) will voice-over a character.

THE ORVILLE is being produced by 20th Century Fox Television and was created and written by MacFarlane. Jon Favreau (The Jungle Book) will direct and also serve as an executive director.

Seth MacFarlane is adding this to his collection of other works including Family Guy, American Dad!, The Cleveland Show, Ted, and A Million Ways to Die in the West.

Here is the official synopsis:

THE ORVILLE is a live-action, one hour space adventure series set 400 years in the future that follows The Orville, a mid-level exploratory spaceship. 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.”
