Seth MacFarlane's face is coming to television. The Family Guy creator and voice actor will appear in the flesh in his live-action TV acting debut, a comedic drama set to hit Fox in 2017. The network has given the show a 13-episode straight-to-series order, reports Deadline. MacFarlane also created and executive-produced the sci-fi series, which is set 300 years in the future and follows "the adventures of the Orville, a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar fleet." The show sounds like a good fit for MacFarlane: He likes space, and most people wouldn't mind sending him there.
