20th Century Fox TV has big plans for Alex Borstein, who voices Lois on the studio’s hit animated comedy Family Guy. The actress-writer has signed a deal with the studio to develop, write and executive produce two comedy projects that she would potentially star in — one animated and one live-action. Additionally, 20th TV has signed a talent holding deal with Borstein so other writers would be developing for her too, and she could be cast in an existing project. Borstein has been in the Fox family for the past 13 years — as a writer-performer on the network’s late-night sketch comedy Mad TV where she created such memorable characters as Miss Swan, and as a key cast member on the 20th/Fox comedy Family Guy, on which she also served as a writer-producer. She also did a variety show with Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane, which aired on Fox as a special. Read More »
