New FOX shows: American Guy and Family Dad

Sunday, September 25th, 2005 - 9:42 pm PDT

With the success of both Family Guy and American Dad, FOX Television has hired Seth McFarlane to develop two additional animated series for their network: American Guy and Family Dad. Each new show will feature an overweight, annoying father and his dedicated, attractive wife, plus two nondescript kids. American Guy will also have a pet cat who lusts after the wife, while Family Dad’s cast will be rounded out by a pet gerbil who lusts after the wife. If the two new shows fare well, FOX is said to be considering two additional series that McFarlane has pitched: American Family and Dad Guy.
