Trailer For Seth MacFarlane’s ‘Star Trek’-Inspired Comedy ‘The Orville’ Released
  |  @   |  

FOX has been releasing some trailers for upcoming shows this week, including one for the X-Men series The Gifted.

Another trailer they released is for a show titled The Orville. It’s a sci-fi comedy inspired by Star Trek (so a little closer to Galaxy Quest, but without the Seven Samurai storyline), and comes from Family Guy creator and Ted director Seth MacFarlane, with Jon Favreau (Iron Man, The Jungle Book) directing. The show is set 400 years in the future, following the crew of a spaceship as they face everything from dangerous space situations to normal day-to-day workplace situations.

You can read much more about The Orville and watch the trailer below.
