Streamer Peacock has announced a straight-to-series order for “Ted,” from UCP, a division of Universal Studio Group, and MRC Television. The upcoming series is based on the hit Universal Pictures and MRC Film’s “Ted,” the highest grossing original R-rated comedy of all time. Collectively “Ted” and “Ted 2” grossed more than $750 million worldwide.
Seth MacFarlane is in negotiations to reprise the voice of the iconic and lovable foul-mouthed teddy bear. The live-action series, based on Seth MacFarlane’s feature films released by Universal Pictures with MRC Film, will be executive produced by MacFarlane and Erica Huggins for Fuzzy Door.
This is the second series order since MacFarlane and Fuzzy Door signed an overall development deal with UCP in 2020. Earlier this year, Peacock announced a series order of “The End is Nye” hosted by Bill Nye. The series is produced by Universal Television Alternative Studio and UCP, divisions of Universal Studio Group, and Fuzzy Door.
