New Episodes of "American Dad!" Moving to TBS in Late 2014 After Upcoming Final Broadcast Season on FOX

TBS to Premiere Season 11 of Twentieth Century Fox Television's Animated Comedy, With Encores Set to Air on Sister Network Adult Swim

TBS has picked up Twentieth Century Fox Television's animated hit American Dad! as an original series, beginning with the show's 11th season. Created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, American Dad! will join TBS's primetime lineup in late 2014. Sister network Adult Swim is set to present encores of each episode after initial airings on TBS. American Dad!, which will begin its 10th season on the FOX television network this fall, is executive-produced by MacFarlane, Barker and Weitzman. TBS has ordered 15 episodes for season 11.

"American Dad! is a great fit for TBS, a favorite of comedy fans who like smart, irreverent humor with ample doses of biting wit and skewering satire," said Michael Wright, president, head of programming for TBS, TNT and Turner Classic Movies (TCM). "We look forward to welcoming Seth MacFarlane and the rest of his team as they bring this iconic show to TBS."

"American Dad! is a brilliantly inventive series, and TBS's desire to platform new episodes demonstrates the enduring power of great and compelling content," commented Twentieth Century Fox TV Chairmen Gary Newman and Dana Walden. "Seth, Mike and Matt have created an incredibly rich world of unique characters, and we couldn't be happier that they will be able to continue to tell their trademark brand of subversive, hilarious stories to their millions of fans."

TBS and Adult Swim are no strangers to the Seth MacFarlane universe, having aired reruns of American Dad! and MacFarlane's Family Guy throughout the networks' lineups. TBS currently airs American Dad! reruns weekdays at 1 and 1:30 p.m. (ET/PT). Adult Swim presents reruns of the show Tuesday-Friday at 10 p.m. (ET/PT), Monday-Friday at 10:30 p.m. (ET/PT) and Saturdays at 9:30 p.m. (ET/PT).

About American Dad!

The award-winning animated comedy American Dad! follows staunch GOP supporter and CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, Va. Stan's blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that allows her to turn a blind eye toward Stan's unabashed arrogance. Meanwhile, Stan constantly butts heads with his 18-year-old left-wing activist daughter, Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), who knows just how to push her father's buttons, whether it's by helping the homeless, demanding women's rights, or advocating gun control. Hayley's 14-year-old brother is the geeky-yet-confident Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex.

The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), the sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien who is constantly trying on new disguises and, with them, new personalities, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), the attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier who always throws in his two cents, regardless of whether anyone is listening. Together, this screwball family of radically different personalities is just trying to figure out how to love and trust one another in a bi-partisan world. And with a guy like Stan in charge of national security, it's guaranteed to be one hilarious ride.

Since premiering on FOX in 2005, American Dad! has earned several industry accolades, including two Emmy(R) nominations for Outstanding Animated Program, two Annie Award nominations and seven Teen Choice Award nominations. In 2012, it took home the top television series prize at the ASCAP Film & Television Music Awards.
