"AMERICAN DAD" IS COMING TO A THEATER NEAR YOU!
AMERICAN DAD Short to Premiere Before "Fever Pitch" in Theaters Nationwide
AMERICAN DAD: INSIDE THE CIA, a never-before-seen short, will run exclusively before the film "Fever Pitch," starring Drew Barrymore and Jimmy Fallon, beginning Friday, April 8. The three-minute short, which is a take-off on CIA training films from the '50s, will screen in its entirety in approximately 3,000 theaters nationwide. AMERICAN DAD premieres Sunday, May 1 (9:30-10:00 PM ET/PT) on FOX
The animated comedy series revolves around STAN SMITH (Seth MacFarlane, "Family Guy"), a CIA agent based in Langley Falls, VA, who is an undisputed weapons expert and proud family man. The Smith family includes Stan's sweet, Edith Bunker-esque wife, FRANCINE (Wendy Schaal); his ultra-liberal 18-year-old daughter, HAYLEY (Rachael MacFarlane); and his geeky 13-year-old son, STEVE (Scott Grimes). Their household is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: ROGER (Seth MacFarlane), the sarcastic space alien Stan rescued from Area 51; and KLAUS (Dee Bradley Baker), a lascivious, German-speaking goldfish � the result of a CIA experiment gone seriously wrong. This eccentric family full of radically different personalities is just trying to find a way to love and trust each other during these increasingly stressful times. And with a guy like Stan doing his best to make America safer, it's bound to be a hilarious ride.
"Fever Pitch" is a contemporary romantic comedy about a successful woman (Drew Barrymore) who thinks she's finally met the perfect guy (Jimmy Fallon).

The film is directed by Peter Farrelly & Bobby Farrelly and written by Lowell Ganz & Babaloo Mandel, based on the book by Nick Hornby.
