Fox Orders 13 Episodes Of Seth MacFarlane’s Animated Sitcom BORDERTOWN!!
The latest McFarlane cartoon will delve into the lives of a U.S. border patrol agent and his Mexican-American neighbor.
This may sound like it’s meant to replace MacFarlane’s cancelled “The Cleveland Show,” but it’s probably meant to fill the timeslot currently held by “American Dad,” which is moving to TBS next season.
Look! Press release!
