Exclusive: Seth MacFarlane Set to Headline Political Thriller Series at Peacock

Apr 21, 2020

We at The GWW have learned that Seth MacFarlane is working on a few new shows for NBCUniversal.

The first of these series is an untitled political thriller at NBCU’s streamer Peacock. MacFarlane is set to both executive produce and star in this series for the new service.

The political thriller at Peacock will be co-produced by Comcast’s Sky, with the other shows also most likely being co-produced by Sky. The production title for the Peacock series is “Wrath.”

MacFarlane is also working on television series for SyFy and NBC, though details on these series are being kept under wraps.

The actor, animator, filmmaker, comedian, and singer, is known for creating ‘Family Guy,’ ‘The Orville,’ and co-creating ‘American Dad!’ and ‘The Cleveland Show.’ He also wrote, directed, and starred in the films ‘Ted,’ ‘Ted 2,’ and ‘A Million Ways to Die in the West.’

You can expect MacFarlane to be involved with more future NBCUniversal series from, seeing as how MacFarlane signed an exclusive $200 million deal with NBCUniversal. Under the deal, he will develop television projects for both internal and external networks. MacFarlane, however, will still be free to shop film projects to other studios while his current shows ‘Family Guy,’ ‘American Dad!,’ and ‘The Orville’ will continue to air on their respective networks.

It is currently unknown when any of the series will start production.
