Congrats to STC! Friend Mark Hentemann! According to Variety, Fox has given a 13-episode order to an animated comedy, Bordertown, from Seth MacFarlane and Mark.
Skein revolves around two families living in a small town along the U.S.-Mexico border — one headed by a border patrol agent, the other by an industrious Mexican immigrant. It’s targeted to premiere next season.
Hentemann and MacFarlane will exec producer for 20th Century Fox TV. Fellow Family Guy scribes Alex Carter and Dan Vebber are co-exec producers.
And thanks again (self-serving promo ahead) for this quote on Save the Cat! Strikes Back:
“A dazzling expansion on Blake’s original insights, this essential screenwriting tool is practical and profound.” –Mark Hentemann, Writer/Executive Producer, Family Guy
