Univision has announced that TeleFutura, as part of its plant to expand its programming, will add Seth MacFarlane’s “Family Guy”.
Family Guy is one the most successful franchises in television, and TeleFutura adding it to their primetime lineup will make it the first time the animated series will be shown on Spanish-language television in the U.S.
“Family Guy” follows the adventures of endearingly ignorant dad Peter Griffin and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders – wife Lois, daughter Meg, son Chris, baby Stewie and dog Brian – in Quahog, Rhode Island. The animated series, which features the voice talents of Seth MacFarlane, Alex Borstein, Seth Green and Mila Kunis, is a 20th Century Fox Television production and is distributed by Twentieth Television. Seth MacFarlane is creator/executive producer. Mark Hentemann and Steve Callaghan serve as executive producers/showrunners, while Chris Sheridan, Danny Smith, Alec Sulkin and Wellesley Wild are executive producers.
The network also announced a new talk show will be debuting this spring, and will be hosted by one of Hispanic America’s most beloved television hosts, Charytín.
