Now that we’re rolling into Summer we are going to be seeing all of the networks drop pilots and trailers for their (hopeful) new tent-pole shows! It’s the time of year that we see dozens of shows release, only to never be seen or heard from again. Fox was quick to kick off the season with a trailer for a new Star Trek parody show with Family Guy’s Seth McFarlane to write and star!
Orville is a interstellar comedy starring McFarlane, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D’s Adrianne Palicki and American Dad’s Scott Grimes. It is a shot-by-shot rip off (intentionally) of the old Star Trek series’ that were so popular in the 80’s & 90’s. But will it be good? Judging by this trailer… maybe?
It’s hard to tell if the show will be a one hit wonder, if the jokes will be fresh or re-used Family guy shticks, or if it’ll blow us all away and be the newest & hottest comedy on FOX! Time will tell.
