Part Galaxy Quest, part Star Trek, Seth MacFarlane and Jon Favreau joins forces for a sci-fi spoof show on Fox.
Clearly drawing influence from Star Trek and channeling Galaxy Quest, ‘The Orville’ is a goofy sci-fi spoof series created by and starring Seth MacFarlane. The show is directed by Jon Favreau who effectively launched the Marvel cinematic universe by making Iron Man the success it turned out to be.
The U.S.S. Orville is a standard exploratory spacecraft with a crew comprised of human and aliens facing the dangers of encountering hostile civilisations and regular workplace challenges. Down on his luck Planetary Union officer Ed Mercer catches a break by landing command of the Orville, the only problem? He has to work alongside his bitterly divorced ex-wife.
Hour long episodes will air on Fox each Thursday.
