Fuzzy Door Productions


Writer / Director / Producer

MacFarlane is a veritable Hollywood machine. He’s the creator-star-exec producer of outer space dramedy “The Orville” on Fox, which has been renewed for a third season, and the creator-principal voice actor-exec producer of two animated series, Fox’s “Family Guy,” now in its 18th season, and “American Dad!” which wrapped its 15th go-round on TBS after years on Fox. In 2019, MacFarlane was seen as former Fox News PR chief Brian Lewis in the Showtime limited series “The Loudest Voice,” and he also found time to record his fifth studio album, “Once in a While,” which debuted at the top of the iTunes jazz charts. Returning in 2020 is season two of his science show — a reboot of Carl Sagan’s acclaimed “Cosmos” — on Fox, but the coming years will see him making projects for NBCUniversal Content Studios, following a new overall deal that’s reportedly worth nine figures.
