DESCRIPTION: (from FOX's press release, May 2013) Entering its 11th season, FAMILY GUY continues to entertain fans with its shocking humor, infamous cutaway gags and epic episodes. Since its debut, the show has reached cult status among fans, and its breakout star, a talking baby, has become one of the greatest TV villains of all time. FAMILY GUY has racked up numerous awards, including an Emmy Award nomination for Outstanding Comedy Series, only the second animated series in television history to be honored with such a distinction. The show follows the adventures of an endearingly ignorant dad, PETER GRIFFIN (Seth MacFarlane), and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, RI. LOIS (Alex Borstein) is Peter's wife, a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her family's antics. Then there are their kids: 18-year-old MEG (Mila Kunis) is an outcast at school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old CHRIS (Seth Green) is a socially awkward teen who doesn't have a clue about the opposite sex; and one-year-old STEWIE (MacFarlane) is a diabolically clever baby whose burgeoning sexuality is very much a work in progress. Rounding out the Griffin household is BRIAN (MacFarlane), the family dog and a ladies man who is one step away from AA. In the upcoming season, the Griffins embark on a hilarious trip to Italy, Peter discovers that he has a vestigial twin growing out of his neck and a love triangle emerges between Stewie, Brian and Stewie's teddy bear, Rupert. Also, Peter and QUAGMIRE (MacFarlane) become a singing/songwriting team, in the vein of Simon & Garfunkel. Guest voices scheduled for the 11th season include Conan O'Brien, Jeff Daniels, Michelle Dockery, Tony Sirico, Yvette Nicole Brown and Gary Cole. FAMILY GUY is a 20thCentury Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane is creator/executive producer. Rich Appel serves as executive producer/showrunner, while Mark Hentemann, Steve Callaghan, Danny Smith, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild are executive producers.
