Seth wants attention, gets it from us



Tbdgriffins072407 Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane must be a tad jealous over all the mania over The Simpsons Movie — he’s running his mouth that his series may hit the big screen, as well.

The Hollywood Reporter quotes MacFarlane as saying it’s been planned for awhile, but there’s no story, no script and no studio push to do such a thing. Why even bring it up, then? Because he started by talking about reviving his short-lived sitcom The Winner, which starred Robb Corddry and was yanked after six episodes, and nobody cares about that.

“We have been trying to figure out how to do that (a movie) and the series at the same time without the series suffering,” Seth said, adding that a quality story is hard to come by (obviously, if you’ve seen the show lately). “I don’t want to do ‘The Griffins must save the world.’ ”
