During the Family Guy panel at San Diego Comic-Con today, creator Seth MacFarlane took a moment to show a new tailer for his upcoming live-action series The Orville. The new Fox series stars MacFarlane as Captain Ed Mercer, in charge of his first starship. The series also stars Adrianne Palicki, Chad L. Coleman, Scott Grimes, Mark Jackson, and Penny Johnson Jerald.
The show’s description reads:
“Down on his luck after a bitter divorce, Planetary Union officer Ed Mercer finally gets his chance to command his own ship. Determined to prove his worth and start a new chapter, Ed discovers the first wrinkle in his plan when the First Officer assigned to his ship is his ex-wife, Kelly Grayson. As the new commander, Ed assembles a qualified — but eccentric — crew, including his best friend, Gordon, who has problems with authority but is the best helmsman in the fleet; Dr. Claire Finn; Bortus, an alien from a single-sex species; Isaac, an artificial life-form from a machine society; navigator John Lamarr; Alara Kitan, a young, inexperienced security officer; and Yaphit, a gelatinous creature.”
The Orville debuts October 10th on Fox.
