The Griffins are set to premiere their famously dysfunctional behavior in español!
For the first time ever, Seth MacFarlene’s hit show, Family Guy will air in Spanish for US audiences on Univision’s sister network TeleFutura. According to Reuters, the network is currently working on expanding programming initiatives and original content. The syndicated series and Emmy winner is known for its dark humor surrounding pop culture and politics.
The network also hired new executives, senior vice president Luis Fernández-Rocha and vice president Carlos Bardasano to expand TeleFutura’s production growth. President of entertainment for Univision, Luis Fernández commented on the new team members,"I am pleased to welcome two of the most talented executives in the business to our growing TeleFutura Network. Both Luis and Carlos bring extensive experience with an understanding of the U.S. Hispanic community that will be instrumental in their leadership of the Network and its continued development."
Family Guy will air in primetime on TeleFutura, but no airdates have been announced as of yet.
