Family Guy Cancellation

The Show was cancelled in May 2000, at the end of the second season. But by July, it seems the execs had a change of heart and ordered 13 more episodes of the show.

The show was again cancelled at the end of the third season, in 2002. After being sold to Cartoon Network it found a new fandom and found success on DVD, the show was brought in 2005 and has been on ever since.

Spec Script

Here are the 2 scenes we read. I know we didn’t do the voices, but read it in the voices of the characters, it will do it justice.

Hallowe’en 2020 (title tbd. Possibly “Quarantine Wolf” or “Candy Quarantine”)

Int. house. Day. Loise and Stewie meet upstairs in the hallway…

Loise: Oh, Stewie, you are dressed up as a Canadian Lumberjack for Hallowe’en? That’s so nice…

Stewie: Actually, I am a Nova Scotian Lobster fisher on my way to burn down a rival fishery…

Loise: Stewie! Those fishermen committed an act of violence on indiginous communities. Their actions are racist!

Stewie: There is no racism in Canada, woman. Justin Trudeau was on Lilly Singh’s late show, which means he knows an Indian. Also, sometimes he dresses like one…

Cut to Justin Trudeau in brown face on RuPaul’s Drag Race, and Ru saying “Your look is ill conceived, poorly executed and is a Tru Don’t.  Mr. Prime Minister, sashay away…”

Introduction music… It seems today…

Scene 1

Interior, living room, night, Brian and Chris are talking on the couch in front of the TV.

Chris: There is nothing scary on Netflix!

Brian: Oh, then don’t fall into the white guy vortex of the stand-up comedy section…

The comic series was created by John Layman and Rob Guillory and published by Image comics between 2009 and 2016. So turns out I don’t have that much to catch up on cuz I have 8 of the 10 trades for the series. It really is a good read though. Just be prepared for weird (and kinda gross). Of and it is definitely not for kids.

Happy!
