Associated Press Associated Press 5/05/2016

Seth MacFarlane is going to star in and produce a sci-fi TV series set 300 years in the future.

Fox said on Wednesday that the series, described as a comedic drama, is intended for the network's 2017-18 season.

The untitled show will follow a motley crew of a spaceship from Earth on an exploratory mission. Fox says it has ordered 13 hourlong episodes.

MacFarlane's TV career has focused on animation, as producer and voice actor for series including Fox's Family Guy and TBS' American Dad!

His movie credits include Ted and its sequel and A Million Ways to Die in the West.

MacFarlane has gotten serious about space before, as producer of Fox's documentary series "Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey."

An air date and other casting for the new show weren't announced.
