About FAMILY GUY
FAMILY GUY follows the adventures of an endearingly ignorant dad, PETER GRIFFIN (Seth MacFarlane), and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, RI. LOIS (Alex Borstein) is Peter's wife, a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her family's antics. Then there are their kids: 18-year-old MEG (Mila Kunis) is an outcast at school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old CHRIS (Seth Green) is a socially awkward teen who doesn't have a clue about the opposite sex; and one-year-old STEWIE (MacFarlane) is a diabolically clever baby. Rounding out the Griffin household is BRIAN (MacFarlane), the family dog and a ladies man. FAMILY GUY is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane is creator/executive producer. Rich Appel and Steve Callaghan serve as executive producers/co-showrunners, while Danny Smith and Kara Vallow are executive producers.
