The Winner: MacFarlane Thinks FOX Sitcom May Return

The WinnerAt the Just for Laughs comedy festival in Montreal, Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane discussed the possibility of a Family Guy movie. He said that, though there are no story ideas as yet and FOX hasn’t given the greenlight, it’s a project he’d like to do. MacFarlane said, “We have been trying to figure out how to do [a movie] and the series at the same time without the series suffering.”

One source of help may be Ricky Blitt, a former writer on Family Guy. Blitt also created The Winner sitcom which ran on FOX last season to low ratings. MacFarlane says he may ask Blitt to start on a Family Guy movie script but also said there may be some life left in Winner. MacFarlane offered, “It is looking like there could be a future life for The Winner. I hope it pans out.” MacFarlane didn’t offer any further details but as an executive producer on the series, he certainly has the inside track. We’ll keep you posted. Stay tuned!

    I hope that show never comes back. There is no life left in it. As a matter of fact, it was D.O.A.
