Seth MacFarlane Inks $200MD Overall Deal with NBCUniversal

So some massive news has emerged today!

Seth MacFarlane is on the move. Following decades-long relationship with 20th Century Fox Television, the man behind Family Guy has signed a rich, nine-figure overall deal with NBCUniversal Content Studios.

With MacFarlane's move to NBCUniversal, could this mean we could potentially see the Family Guy franchise in the parks? I'd love to see them in the parks! Let me know what you think in the replies.

I bet Disney and Disney+ are kicking themselves about this.

Depends on the deal with Disney though. Does Disney only owns the rights to air Fox Animation properties and not the theme park rights themselves?

Legitimately speaking, I actually wouldn't be shocked if we start seeing lesser and lesser of Family Guy, now that Seth has inked the deal.

Compared to Simpsons, Family Guy..is more brutal in what it does.

The real question is does Disney have 100% control over the show? If so, then it’s possible, however, there could be some clauses in there for Seth and if say it got canceled on FOX, could Peacock pick the show up and Disney would have to let them?

FOX owns the rights to Family Guy, American Dad, and The Cleveland Show. Which is a different arrangement than Matt Groening has with FOX.
