Seth MacFarlane and NBCUniversal have just inked a major deal.
Multiple outlets report that MacFarlane has signed an overall deal with the company and that it is reportedly worth at least $200 million for five years. Under the deal MacFarlane’s production company Fuzzy Door will develop and produce projects for NBCUniversal.
“I am extremely honored to be partnering with Dawn Olmstead and the entire UCP team,” MacFarlane said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter. “My relationship with Universal pre-dates this new chapter, and if my experience producing television with UCP is anything like the experience I’ve had producing films with the company, it will be an exciting and creatively fulfilling one for me and for Fuzzy Door. I’m especially inspired by all of the opportunities that NBCUniversal Content Studios has to offer with George [Cheeks] and Bonnie [Hammer] at the helm. I will remain indebted to my good friend Dana Walden and the team at 20th for their collaborative partnership over the years, and I look forward to our continued work together on Family Guy, American Dad, and The Orville.”
MacFarlane’s overall deal at 20th Century Fox Television expired in June.
