Filming Wraps On “Ted” Prequel Series
Filming has officially wrapped on Seth MacFarlane’s “Ted” prequel series for the Peacock streaming service.
“The Orville” and “Family Guy” creator MacFarlane has taken to Instagram to show off a picture of Ted seen through one of the monitors and confirmed that principal photography on the show had concluded.
The picture itself is fairly generic and with no real details available about the show beyond it being a 1993-set prequel with Max Burkholder playing a younger version of Mark Wahlberg’s John Bennett character from the two films.
The film is said to track Ted and John’s adolescence in Boston suburbia with a tone the same as the films, including the R-rated humor which won’t be watered down.
What’s different is this will mark a rare TV series where the main character is fully CG at all times and gets a lot of screen time per episode. Scott Grimes and Alanna Ubach co-star as John’s parents, MacFarlane is one again voicing Ted, whilst Giorgia Whigham co-star.
Paul Korrigan and Brad Walsh co-showrun the ten-episode series, which has not yet announced a release date.
