Get ready for the new daily show

Seth MacFarlane in talks to voice Ted for new live-action TV series

June 11th, 2021 by Marc Comments

This is genuinely an exciting bit of news.

Peacock has given a straight-to-series order for a live-action comedy series based on the Seth McFarlane Ted movies.

The movies saw a man (Mark Wahlberg) living with his living Teddy Bear, Ted, who he wished to life when he was a young child. The bear was voiced by creator Seth MacFarlane and the humour was of the highest adult quality and it was superbly funny. Yes, even the second one has its laugh-out-loud moments.

So, in a time when it seems risky humour is no longer allowed or is frowned upon, I hope they keep the heart of the movies for this new show.

We know that MacFarlane, left, is in negotiations to return as Ted, however fellow stars Mark Wahlberg and Mila Kunis are not currently in discussions to appear.

Honestly, I can see this being a big hit with fans of MacFarlane’s other shows – Family Guy, American Dad –  and honestly, with the next series of The Orville seemingly still lost in space, I welcome him back on our screens.

What say you all? Would you let Ted come in your house every week? I know I would.
