Fox picks up new Seth MacFarlane 'toon
Get ready for more Seth MacFarlane on Fox.
The network, which is already home to MacFarlane’s Family Guy and Dads, announced today it has picked up 13 episodes of a new animated comedy called Bordertown, which comes from MacFarlane and Family Guy producer Mark Hentemann. The show will center on two families living in a Southwest desert town on the U.S.-Mexico border.
While no debut date is officially set, the show will likely land on Sundays as part of the Fox animation block that currently consists of The Simpsons, which was recently renewed, Bob’s Burgers, Family Guy and American Dad, which is moving to TBS in 2014.
The announcement comes one month after Fox pulled the plug on Murder Police, the midseason animated project starring Jane Lynch, before it aired a single episode.
