Writer / Director / Producer

The success of “Family Guy,” now in its 17th season, has led to a Fox mini-empire for MacFarlane, including the animated “American Dad!” and “The Cleveland Show.” A consummate multi-hyphenate, he delved into science in 2014, appearing in and producing Neil deGrasse Tyson’s “Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey,” and ventured onto premium cable, exec-producing Starz’s “Blunt Talk.” Besides crooning on multiple albums, MacFarlane directed and co-wrote the foul-mouthed talking-teddy-bear comedy “Ted,” which spawned a sequel. He also wrote, directed and starred in 2014’s “A Million Ways to Die in the West.” He also grabbed headlines for hosting the Oscars in 2013. Upcoming is the second season of “Star Trek”–inspired drama “The Orville” and a new “Cosmos” installment.
