creator Seth MacFarlane
has signed a $100 million deal with 20th Century Fox, in a move which will make him the highest-paid writer-producer in television.
The agreement will see MacFarlane stay at the company until 2012, covering his work on cartoon Family Guy and his two other animated series with Fox - American Dad
and Family Guy spin-off The Cleveland Show
The deal is also reported to include new projects related to the TV series as well as gaining MacFarlane a cut of DVD and merchandising revenue. If the $100 million reports are true, MacFarlane's contract will eclipse the deal struck by Lost
Creator J.J. Abrams
with Paramount Pictures and Warner Bros TV in 2006 for a reported $60 million.
