Peter Macon and J Lee Join Seth MacFarlane’s Fox Series Orville

By

Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane recently created Orville, a 13-episode straight-to-series comedic drama to hit Fox in 2017. The show is set 300 years in the future and follows the adventures of the Orville, an exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar fleet that isn’t exactly top of the line. Now, there are two new members of the ship’s crew; Peter Macon and J Lee (Family Guy) have been cast as series regulars opposite MacFarlane, reports Deadline. In addition to MacFarlane, Adrianne Palicki and Scott Grimes have also been cast. Macon recently played a recurring role on Showtime’s Shameless and Amazon’s Bosch.
