Seth MacFarlane’s Fuzzy Door Names Jason Clark President

Producer Jason Clark has been named president of Seth MacFarlane’s production company Fuzzy Door. Clark will shepherd new projects and oversee production and development for the company’s current film and television slate.

Clark had previously worked with MacFarlane on his feature films “Ted,” “Ted 2” and “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” He also served as an executive producer on “Mr. Peabody & Sherman,” “42,” and “Monster House.”

MacFarlane and Clark collaborated on the Fox miniseries “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” for which Clark won a PGA Award for outstanding producer of non-fiction television.

“This is an exciting time for Seth and Fuzzy Door and I could not pass up the opportunity to help him expand upon his reputation as an extraordinary talent, great producer and collaborator,” Clark said in a statement. “I’ve had the privilege of producing several feature and television projects with Seth in the past and watching him bring stories and characters to life is inspiring.  I’m looking forward to continuing our creative relationship and working closely with him to grow Fuzzy Door into a destination entertainment company that helps him and other creatives realize their vision.”

Fox recently gave a straight-to-series order to an untitled live-action science fiction comedy series in which MacFarlane is set to star and exec produce. The series will join his existing Fox series “Family Guy” and TBS comedy “American Dad!”

“Jason Clark has proven himself time and time again to be a brilliant producer and innovator,” MacFarlane said. “He figured out how to bring a talking teddy bear to life on a budget, and how to execute the next generation of the television series ‘Cosmos’ with feature-quality production value. He is of a rare Hollywood breed that constantly finds new ways to re-invent the wheel, and has, in addition, an excellent eye for potential new projects. I’m thrilled to have him at the helm of my production company.”
