Family Guy Spinoff in the Works

Family Guy Spinoff in the Works
February 29, 2008

The Hollywood Reporter says Fox and 20th Century Fox TV are developing a spinoff from its hit animated series "Family Guy" centered on Peter Griffin's bathtub-accident-prone neighbor, Cleveland Brown.

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."

Cleveland, who plays off black stereotypes, is the most levelheaded among Griffin's trio of friends.

In addition to "Cleveland," Fox and 20th TV also are developing a spinoff of the drama series "Prison Break," set at a female prison.
