Fox and 20th Century Fox TV are developing a spinoff from its hit animated series centered on Peter Griffin’s bathtub-accident-prone neighbor, sources said.

The project, tentatively titled “Cleveland,” is being written by “Family Guy” creator Seth MacFarlane, Mike Henry — who voices Cleveland and serves as writer-producer on the series — and “The Simpsons” alum Rich Appel, executive producer/showrunner on MacFarlane’s other animated comedy for Fox, “American Dad.”
