Here’s the list of upcoming Seth MacFarlane tv series scheduled to release in 2019 and 2020. We can only hope that the latest Seth MacFarlane tv shows would be as good as some of his recent ones.
1. The Loudest Voice (2019)
Based on extensive reporting by Gabriel Sherman for his bestselling book, ‘The Loudest Voice in the Room’, the series stars Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Russell Crowe in the title role and Academy Award nominee Naomi Watts as Gretchen Carlson. Sienna Miller, Seth MacFarlane, Simon McBurney and Annabelle co-star. Crowe also serves as an executive producer on the series. Emmy nominee Kari Skogland will direct the first two episodes.
Miller will portray former NBC news producer Elizabeth “Beth” Ailes, who married Roger, 22 years her senior, in 1998, shortly after the founding of Fox News. Following their marriage, Beth devoted herself to raising their son Zachary as well as serving as the editor of the Putnam County News & Recorder newspaper in their home of Garrison, NY. Beth was a steadfast champion of Roger until his death in 2017 and, to this day, refutes any charge that her husband was less than innocent.
MacFarlane will take on the role of Brian Lewis, Fox News’ public relations chief for over 17 years and Ailes’ closest confidante and supporter. Lewis spent his career promoting and protecting Ailes until the media machine turned against Lewis and ended his career. McBurney will play the role of legendary media magnate, Rupert Murdoch. Murdoch built his father’s Australian newspaper company into a worldwide media empire. But his single greatest media move might have been hiring Roger Ailes to run Fox News, who, against all odds, created a conservative cable news network from the ground up and built it into a multi-billion dollar profit machine. Wallis will play Laurie Luhn, a volunteer who, under Ailes’ mentorship, rose to head of booking at Fox News. Giving into Ailes’ growing demands, she began a long abusive relationship with him that impacted the rest of her life.
