Palicki Joins MacFarlane’s Space Dramedy Series

“Friday Night Lights” and “Agents of SHIELD” actress Adrianne Palicki is set to star opposite Seth MacFarlane in his upcoming and currently untitled live-action space dramedy series.

Set three centuries into the future onboard Orville, an exploratory ship in Earth’s interstellar fleet. A motley crew of space explorers face challenges on cosmic and personal scales in ways that will go where no series has gone before.

Palicki is Kelly Grayson, the Orville’s newly appointed First Officer and ex-wife of the captain Ed (MacFarlane). Also coming onboard is Scott Grimes who has joined the project as Gordon, Ed’s best friend and Orville’s pilot.

MacFarlane created and will executive produce the show which nabbed a straight-to-series thirteen-episode commitment at Fox with a pilot to be filmed later this year.
