NewTeeVee has a video interview with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, who’s launching his Internet series Cavalcade — which will be distributed through Google AdSense — today.

I was able to attend an advance screening of Seth MacFarlane’s Cavalcade of Cartoon Comedy (our review of the series is here) last week, and afterwards sit down for a short Q&A with MacFarlane and representatives from production company Media Rights Capital, Burger King (who sponsors the series) and Google (who will be distributing Cavalcade via AdSense).  Please excuse the amateur sound and editing…

Here are a few details that didn’t make it into the video:

  • MacFarlane does admit that there’s potential for 50 more episodes: “If they do really well, then maybe.”
  • Cavalcade was produced during the WGA strike last winter, but was Guild-approved thanks to an interim agreement struck with MRC, the producing company.
  • Only the first 10 episodes will be associated with Burger King (which has its own YouTube channel hosting the sketches); all will be available at the SethComedy web site and YouTube channel. As for the exact release schedule, “It’s flexible,” according to MacFarlane — for now, they’re promising the release of one or two shorts a week.

  2. Love the videos, but the title cards run a little long. The “Dog on the $25,000 Pyramid” one is 68 seconds: 20 for the opening sequence, 36 for the content, and 12 for the credits. Not my favorite balance, but I applaud the effort! I’ll take 36 seconds of funny over 68 seconds of lame.
