Don Buchwald & Associates/Fox

Peter Macon and J Lee (Family Guy) have been cast as series regulars opposite Seth MacFarlane in Orville, his 13-episode straight-to-series hourlong comedic drama for Fox.

Set 300 years in the future, the series follows the adventures of the Orville, a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar fleet. Facing cosmic challenges from without and within, this motley crew of space explorers will boldly go where no comedic drama has gone before. Macon and Lee will play members of the ship’s crew. In addition to MacFarlane, they join previously announced Adrianne Palicki and Scott Grimes.

Macon, repped by Don Buchwald & Associates, recently recurred on Showtime’s Shameless and Amazon’s Bosch. Lee is repped by attorney Stephen Clark of Lichter Grossman.
