Seth MacFarlane working on live-action show for Fox and ‘Ted’ sequel

This summer gave us quite a few surprises at the box office, but none more so than the $408 million live-action Seth MacFarlane comedy Ted. On the heels of flick’s success, co-writers Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild once again will team up with the Family Guy creator for a new series on Fox, the network home to MacFarlane’s shows, rounded out by American Dad and The Cleveland Show.

The untitled project from 20th Century Fox will center around two successful guys in their thirties whose lives take a turn for the worse when their unpredictable fathers are forced to move in with them, Deadline reports. The show is in the put pilot stage so it’s likely the show will see light. Sulkin, Wellesley and MacFarlane have all worked together on MacFarlane’s major television projects and have recently began work on a reboot of Carl Sagan’s 1980 Cosmos series; acclaimed astrophysicist Neil deGrasse Tyson is set to host.

Finally, due to Ted’s wild success, it looks like we’ll see a sequel. NBCUniversal’s CEO Steve Burke said recently he wants to get to work on that as soon as possible.
