TBS has picked up Twentieth Century Fox Television's animated hit "American Dad!" as an original series, beginning with the show's 11th season. Created by Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman, "American Dad!" will join TBS's primetime lineup in late 2014. Sister network Adult Swim is set to present encores of each episode after initial airings on TBS. "American Dad!", which will begin its 10th season on the FOX this fall, is executive-produced by MacFarlane, Barker and Weitzman. TBS has ordered 15 episodes for season 11.
TBS and Adult Swim are no strangers to the Seth MacFarlane universe, having aired reruns of "American Dad!" and MacFarlane's "Family Guy"throughout the networks' lineups.
