Family Guy Producers Planning a Female-Centric Cartoon

Seth McFarlane is famous for creating animated shows that revolve around male protagonists, with Family Guy’s Peter Griffin, The Cleveland Show’s Cleveland Brown, and American Dad’s Stan Smith all seeming to fit the stereotypical fat and/or stupid father role. In a recent interview with Alex Bornstein (who does the voice for Lois Griffin in Family Guy), it is revealed that McFarlane is planning a new animated series that will be headlined by a female character.

Bornstein will be working alongside McFarlane on the project, but whether she will play the aforementioned female character or will just work as one of the producers has not been clarified. When asked about her specific role, Bornstein has the following to say:

“It’s me and Seth, and another producer named Gary Janetti. We’re kind of raring to go and just waiting to get the green light to start setting up and writing – so it’s very exciting! It has a family and the central character is a female character, which is something different for Fox, and for Seth, and for everyone! I think that the last female-centred animated show that I can remember was Daria [MTV show between 1997-2002].”

Bornstein also let it slip that they are expecting Family Guy to continue for at least four more years, but opined that it would be amazing if the series is capped off by a feature film.
