HOT FROM FOX...

SANAA LATHAN, NIA LONG AND KEVIN MICHAEL RICHARDSON JOIN "THE CLEVELAND SHOW" ON FOX

Sanaa Lathan, Nia Long and Kevin Michael Richardson join the cast of THE CLEVELAND SHOW, the highly anticipated FAMILY GUY spin-off set to debut in 2009 on FOX.

THE CLEVELAND SHOW is a new animated series that follows everyone's favorite soft-spoken neighbor CLEVELAND BROWN (voiced by Mike Henry) to his hometown in Virginia, as he settles down with his high school sweetheart, DONNA (voiced by Lathan), her unruly kids and his 14 year-old son, CLEVELAND JR.

As Cleveland settles into his new life with Donna, there are a few surprises in store for him including a rebellious new stepdaughter, ROBERTA (voiced by Long); a 5-year-old stepson who loves the ladies; as well as a collection of neighbors that includes a loudmouth redneck, LESTER (voiced by Richardson), a British family seemingly stuck in the Victorian era and a family of bears.

Sanaa Lathan has starred in numerous films including "Love & Basketball," "Alien vs. Predator" and "Something New," and will be featured in the upcoming Tyler Perry film "The Family That Preys Together." Lathan received a Tony nomination for her role on "Raisin in the Sun" on Broadway, which was adapted for a MOW, that she starred in opposite Sean Combs. Additionally, she will star in "Wonderful World" opposite Matthew Broderick.

Nia Long's extensive list of film credits includes "Boyz n the Hood," "Alfie," "Big Momma's House" and "Are We There Yet?" She also starred in the television series "Third Watch" and "Big Shots."

No stranger to animation, Kevin Richardson has voiced hundreds of characters on film, commercial and video games over the past years including FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD and "SpongeBob SquarePants." Richardson has a starring role in the upcoming drama series "The Cleaner."

THE CLEVELAND SHOW is a 20th Century Fox Television production. Seth MacFarlane (FAMILY GUY, AMERICAN DAD), Rich Appel (THE SIMPSONS, KING OF THE HILL) and Mike Henry (FAMILY GUY) are executive producers and co-creators of the series.
