Former Friday Night Lights star and almost Wonder Woman, Adrianne Palicki has joined the cast of a recently announced live-action dramedy set in space for Fox. The show has already been ordered and co-stars Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane in his first non-animated TV role.

Created by longtime MacFarlane collaborator (and voice of American Dad) Scott Grimes, the show is set on a spaceship 300 years in the future and stars MacFarlane as the ship’s captain and Palicki as his ex-wife. The show has already received a 13-episode direct to series commitment from Fox and is scheduled to release in 2017.

As a longtime fan of MacFarlane and his movies (yes, even A Million Ways to Die in the West), I’m looking forward to seeing him flex his comedic (and maybe dramatic) chops on the small screen.
