We’re not entirely sure what the fine folks at PaleyFest were expecting from the “Seth MacFarlane & Friends” panelists when they honored his harem of shows this week, but what they got was drinking on stage, sex jokes, impersonations of everyone from William Shatner to Adam West amongst other various shenanigans.
And it was hysterical.
We briefly caught up with Seth MacFarlane right before he headed into the panel and it took him no time at all to have a little fun at our expense.
MacFarlane, however, did behave (sort of) during the panel. But his onscreen wife Alex Borstein wasn’t quite as good. We can’t repeat the vast majority of what she said on stage, but we did talk with her beforehand about the rumors that she’s going to be the lead of Seth’s next animated series.
“I’m embarrassed because that news got out because of me having too many drinks at the FOX TCAs, because nothing’s in stone yet,” Borstein says in the clip below. “But yes, I’m working very hard with another gentleman named Gary Janetti to develop a female animated show to fall into the FOX lineup, so that is definitely at the top of my wish list.”
She also has a fun — and totally nerdy — idea for how the network will fit so many Seth MacFarlane shows on one night…
