FOX's animated hit Family Guy is heading across the
pond giant Atlantic ocean to the UK where it will get an English makeover.
Using Seth MacFarlane’s show as a basis, Happy Families will be an “edgy” cartoon that follows the lives of a typical suburban family living in the UK.
The UK network airing the show has said:
“The combination of slick American animation with quintessentially British humour gives Happy Families a really distinctive feel. Not only is the dialogue laugh-out-loud funny, it’s packed with fantastic celebrity cameos and satirical swipes at every turn."
Edgar, a poor sap who works for his self-obsessed, borderline-evil father-in-law, will be the UK's Peter Griffin-esque character with his wife Wendy and children “weirdo Dusty, idiot Jason, and emo Eve” completing the happy family.
We're definitely curious to see how this turns out!
Do U think the UK version will be better than the original?
