For all the bitching he does about FOX, Seth MacFarlane, creator of “Family Guy”, “American Dad”, and the upcoming “Cleveland” spin-off, knows a good thing when he sees it, and signing a deal that could potentially reach the nine-figures stratosphere is a very good thing. And just in case you glossed over the previous sentence, we’re talking nine-figures here. As in $000,000,000. CHA-CHING indeed!
Variety has the breakdown of the deal:
Terms of the deal were not disclosed, but should MacFarlane’s properties, which also include “American Dad” and upcoming “Family Guy” spinoff “The Cleveland Show,” hit all their financial goals, the value of the pact could ultimately enter the nine-figure range.
Deal not only keeps MacFarlane in place as exec producer of “Family Guy,” “American Dad” and now “The Cleveland Show,” but it also keeps him in place as the key vocal talent on both “Family” and “Dad.” MacFarlane is also set to lend his voice to a neighbor character on “Cleveland.”
Hell, that’s a deal even Stewie would be proud off.
