Seth MacFarlane Explains How 'The Orville' is Breaking Ground

Seth MacFarlane poses with the cast of his upcoming series The Orville while attending the Fox party during the 2017 TCA Summer Pres Tour on Tuesday (August 8) at Soho House in West Hollywood, Calif.

Seth was joined by co-stars Adrianne Palicki, Penny Johnson Jerald, Mark Jackson, Halston Sage, J. Lee, Scott Grimes, Chad L. Coleman, and Peter Macon.

Earlier in the day, the cast attend the Fox panel to talk about the new show and Seth explained how the series is breaking new ground.

“The show is seeking to break a bit of new ground, tonally,” Seth said (via THR). “It’s not something that has been done on TV in recent years, at least in the hourlong format … we really do see it as a sci-fi comedic drama. We allow ourselves room for levity in the ways that a traditional hourlong show doesn’t.”

FYI: Halston is wearing a Victoria Beckham dress at the panel. Adrianne is wearing a white Jay Godfrey dress at the party.
