Family Guy Moving To The UK

There is going to be an english "version" of Family Guy in the U.K. Channel 4 is making a simialr show called Happy Families.

Comedy Commissioning Editor Nerys Evans said:

“The combination of slick American animation with quintessentially British humour gives Happy Families a really distinctive feel. Not only is the dialogue laugh-out-loud funny, it’s packed with fantastic celebrity cameos and satirical swipes at every turn."

Edgar, a put upon wage slave, works for his self obsessed, borderline-evil Father-In-Law Ken Lavender. Married to houseproud wife Wendy, they are parents to three very different children, freaky weirdo Dusty, amiable idiot Jason and highly strung ‘Emo’ Eve.

I think it sounds like it could be good though until I see the animation I shall hold my opinon.

How about you? What do you think of this? Are you looking forward to it?

The one plus for me is that it will be on an ctual tv channel I do have!

The artwork comes via the talented hand of Alex Scarfe, and is animated by LA-based Rough-Draft, the company behind Family Guy, Futurama and The Simpsons Movie.

Voice Cast includes the Bafta-award-winning Kayvan Novak (Facejacker), Simon Greenall (Alan Partridge), Rosie Cavaliero (Jam and Jerusalem), Lucy Montgomery (Bellamy’s People) and Darren Boyd (Whites).

Let me know what you think via the comments!
