About American Dad!
AMERICAN DAD! follows staunch GOP supporter and CIA agent STAN SMITH (Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family inLangley Falls, Virginia. Stan’s blissfully unaware wife, FRANCINE (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that allows her to turn a blind eye toward Stan’s unabashed arrogance. Meanwhile, Stan constantly butts heads with his 18-year-old, left-wing activist daughter HAYLEY (Rachael MacFarlane), who knows just how to push her father’s buttons, whether it’s by helping the homeless, demanding women’s rights or advocating gun control. Hayley’s 14-year-old brother is the geeky yet cocky STEVE (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex. The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members. There’s the sassy and sarcastic space alien ROGER (Seth MacFarlane), who lives in the attic, loves to play dress-up and ran for U.S. President in 2012; and KLAUS (Dee Bradley Baker), an attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German man who always throws in his two cents regardless of whether anyone is listening. This screwball family full of radically different personalities is just trying to figure out how to love and trust one another in a bi-partisan world. And with a guy like Stan in charge of national security, it’s guaranteed to be one wacky ride. AMERICAN DAD! is a 20th Century Fox Television production. The series was co-created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, and is executive produced by MacFarlane, Matt Weitzman and Brian Boyle. Kara Vallow serves as producer. AMERICAN DAD! is distributed by 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.
About Bob’s Burgers
BOB’S BURGERS follows BOB (H. Jon Benjamin), who runs Bob’s Burgers with the help of his wife and their three kids. Bob has big ideas about burgers, but the rest of the clan falls short on service. Despite the greasy counters and lousy location, the Belchers are determined to make every “Grand Re-Re-Re-opening” a success. Bob’s wife LINDA (John Roberts) stands by her man and often does so by bursting into song. Their eldest daughter, 13-year-old TINA (Dan Mintz), has a slight obsession with boys and zombies. Middle child GENE (Eugene Mirman) is an aspiring musician with a thirst for life. LOUISE (Kristen Schaal) is the bunny ears-wearing youngest daughter with an off-kilter sense of humor that makes her somewhat of a liability in the kitchen — and with the public. A 20th Century Fox Television production, BOB’S BURGERS was created by Loren Bouchard (“Home Movies”). Bouchard and Jim Dauterive (“King of the Hill”) serve as executive producers and writers, with animation produced by Bento Box Entertainment. BOB’S BURGERS is distributed by 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.
About Family Guy
FAMILY GUY follows the adventures of an endearingly ignorant dad, PETER GRIFFIN (Seth MacFarlane), and his hilariously odd family of middle-class New Englanders in Quahog, RI. LOIS (Alex Borstein) is Peter’s wife, a stay-at-home mom with no patience for her family’s antics. Then there are their kids: 18-year-old MEG (Mila Kunis) is an outcast at school and the Griffin family punching bag; 13-year-old CHRIS (Seth Green) is a socially awkward teen who doesn’t have a clue about the opposite sex; and one-year-old STEWIE (MacFarlane) is a diabolically clever baby. Rounding out the Griffin household is BRIAN (MacFarlane), the family dog and a ladies man. FAMILY GUY is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane is creator/executive producer. Rich Appel and Steve Callaghan serve as executive producers/co-showrunners, while Danny Smith and Kara Vallow are executive producers.

FRY (Billy West), a 25-year-old pizza delivery boy who accidentally freezes himself on December 31, 1999 and wakes up 1,000 years later with a fresh start at life at Planet Express, an intergalactic delivery company. There, he meets a cast of characters, including love interest LEELA (Katey Sagal), a sexy cyclops with anger management issues, best friend BENDER (John DiMaggio), a beer-powered kleptomaniac robot, PROFESSOR FARNSWORTH (Billy West), a brilliant yet forgetful scientist and intrepid inventor, HERMES (Phil LaMarr), the company’s detail-oriented bureaucrat, AMY (Lauren Tom), an intern who is as cute as she is klutzy, and ZOIDBERG (Billy West), a lobster-like, self-proclaimed expert on humans. Throughout their adventures, the team encounters MOM (Tress MacNeille), the foul-mouthed owner of MomCorp, ZAPP BRANNIGAN (Billy West), the vain, self-absorbed captain of the starship Nimbus, and many others. Just as it is today, life in the future is a complex mix of the wonderful and horrible, where things are still laughable no matter how wild and crazy they get. Fry’s introduction to life in New New York includes a visit to The Head Museum, where the heads of humanity’s most renowned and influential people live on. Against a backdrop of pesky aliens, exasperating robots, and malfunctioning gadgets, Fry finds that people still struggle with the same daily anxieties of life and love.

Groening,David X. Cohen, and Ken Keeler serve as executive producers. FUTURAMA is distributed by 20th Century Fox Television Distribution.
About King of the Hill
KING OF THE HILL depicts the life and times of HANK HILL (Mike Judge), his family and their neighbors in the fictional suburb of Arlen, Texas. A hard-working, loyal family man and proud Texan, Hank is assistant manager of Strickland Propane. He’s a blue-collar man of all trades who sees himself as the voice of common sense and reason in a world of incompetent sales clerks, meddling bureaucrats and do-good liberals. Hank’s better half is his wife, PEGGY (Kathy Najimy). Peggy sees herself as a woman of many talents: realtor, substitute Spanish teacher, fast-pitch softball hurler, local Boggle champion and notary public. Hank and Peggy’s pride and joy is their 13-year-old son, BOBBY (Pamela Adlon). The family is completed by Hank’s 18-year-old niece, LUANNE (Brittany Murphy). Hank can often be found around a barbeque with his beer guzzling neighborhood buddies, DALE (Johnny Hardwick), BILL (Stephen Root) and BOOMHAUER (Mike Judge). Dale’s an exterminator who never met a conspiracy he didn’t like, Bill’s a lonely-hearted Army barber with low self-esteem, and Boomhauer is a cool, rockabilly, muscle-car-driving ladies’ man who speaks unintelligible English. Mike Judge and Greg Daniels are co-creators/executive producers and John Altschuler, Dave Krinsky, Jim Dauterive, Garland Testa, Howard Klein and Michael Rotenberg are executive producers for KING OF THE HILL, which is a Twentieth Century Fox Television production in association with Deedle-Dee Productions, Judgemental Films and 3 Arts Entertainment.
