British actor Mark Jackson has been cast as a series regular opposite Seth MacFarlane in Orville, his 13-episode straight-to-series hourlong comedic drama for Fox.

Set 300 years in the future, the series follows the adventures of the Orville, a not-so-top-of-the-line exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar fleet. Facing cosmic challenges from without and within, this motley crew of space explorers will boldly go where no comedic drama has gone before. Jackson will play a member of the ship’s crew. In addition to MacFarlane, he joins previously announced Peter Macon, J Lee, Adrianne Palicki and Scott Grimes.

Jackson’s TV credits include The Royal Today and That Peter Kay Thing.
