Peter Griffin and the Dowager Countess of Grantham will be neighbors beginning this fall on the U.K.’s ITV, the network announced Monday.
ITV nabbed the local free-to-air rights for “Family Guy” from BBC, which had aired the series since 1999. ITV’s multiyear deal with 20th Century Fox also includes the rights to other Seth MacFarlane animated outings “American Dad,” “The Cleveland Show” and new series “Bordertown.”
“Family Guy” will begin its 15th season this autumn on ITV2, which is aimed at younger audiences.
“The acquisition of these brilliant and distinctive shows is totally in line with the strategy of strengthening ITV2 as a comprehensive entertainment channel destination for young viewers,” Angela Jain, ITV’s director of digital channels and acquisitions, said in a statement.
