Bio

Seth MacFarlane is an American animator, writer, producer, actor, singer, voice artist and director best known for creating the animated sitcoms Family Guy, American Dad! and The Cleveland Show, for which he also voices many of the characters.

Emmy Award-winning creative force MacFarlane began his career studying animation and design at the Rhode Island School of Design.

While in school, MacFarlane created an animated short film entitled The Life of Larry. The film impressed executives at Hanna-Barbera, who then encouraged MacFarlane to move to Los Angeles in 1995 to create and direct a short film for them.

After moving to the West Coast, he went on to work on numerous animated series, including Ace Ventura, Jungle Cubs and Johnny Bravo.

Shortly after, MacFarlane's talent was noted by executives at FOX who made him an offer to create a pilot for the network.

Over the next six months, MacFarlane created, animated, wrote, directed and provided all the main male characters' voices for what became Family Guy. The seven-minute short was delivered in May 1998, and was picked up just weeks later.

At age 24, MacFarlane was the youngest executive producer in television.

In the years that Family Guy has been on the air, MacFarlane has received an Emmy Award for Outstanding Voice-Over Performance for his role as Stewie Griffin and for Outstanding Music and Lyrics for Family Guy in 2002.

In 2009, Family Guy became the only animated show since The Flintstones in 1961 to be nominated for a Primetime Emmy in the category of Outstanding Comedy. Previously, Family Guy garnered three nominations for Outstanding Animated Series.

In addition to Family Guy, MacFarlane also serves as co-creator/executive producer/voice actor on American Dad! and The Cleveland Show.

MacFarlane lives in Los Angeles.
