Family Guy producers finally explain the origins of that Kevin Spacey joke

Family Guy producers finally explain the origins of that Kevin Spacey joke Family Guy producers finally explain the origins of that Kevin Spacey joke

And it had to be sort of explained to me, "Oh, there's this rumour that's going on.' " Alec Sulkin, the show's producer, explained that the joke was made in relation to an incident in a London park in 2004.

In the season four episode, baby Stewie is seen running through a shopping centre yelling: 'Help! "I've escaped from Kevin Spacey's basement!"

The pending Disney/Fox deal has raised plenty of questions about the future of content creators, but "Family Guy" uber-producer Seth MacFarlane, who has an overall deal with 20th Century Fox TV, says he was "remarkably unfazed" by the news.

Family Guy creator, and star, Seth MacFarlane said on Thursday at the Television Critics Association's Winter Press Tour he wasn't the one who pitched the controversial joke that made its way into the years-old episode and left many fans wondering what MacFarlane knew about Spacey ahead of the public revelations.

As reported by Entertainment Weekly, MacFarlane said: "I don't remember who pitched the joke". Spacey came out as gay in October previous year after actor Anthony Rapp accused the Hollywood star of making unwanted sexual advances towards him.

FX: No complaints about Louis CK's conduct during his time at network

USC RB Ronald Jones declares for National Football League draft
That production only improved in his junior campaign, as Jones had 261 carries for 1,550 yards and 19 touchdowns on the ground. In three seasons with the Trojans, Jones rushed for 3,619 yards, leaving him fifth on the school's career rushing list.

GoPro cuts hundreds of jobs in its drone division
CEO Nick Woodman reported that the company had 1,254 employees as recently as November of previous year . Sources familiar with the matter told TechCrunch that GoPro is laying off 200-300 employees this week.

He wasn't aware of it at the time, but there were rumors floating around about Spacey, which the show's writers chose to incorporate into the script.

Family Guy, which did slip in an additional Spacey joke in a December episode, will celebrate a milestone on January 14: a 300th episode, which will be extended by several minutes in length and feature limited commercial interruptions. "I remember when it was pitched that was a rumour that I had actually not heard, and other writers in the writers' room had".

Fellow executive producer Rich Appel said "Family Guy" will also be allowed by Fox's standards and practices to make scandalous jokes about celebrities if "there's some rumor out there that's been published [or] if it seems so outrageous that no one could possibly believe it this would be". "[When] this all happened I was just watching all this happen from afar". So it's a odd thing to observe. "And you work with what you have, whether that be swirling rumor or political fact or whatnot". Did the people behind the show know what was going on long before we did?

There is no difference with what the Simpsons, South Park, or Family Guy does.
