A Sub-Project of #AStarForCarrieSign PetitionSign Petition
As a HUGE fan of the acerbically funny, decades-running adult animated comedy “Family Guy”, I must start a SECOND petition SUGGESTING Fox hire an ALL-FEMALE staff of writers for at least the one episode of the next season.
Carrie Fisher, who voiced “Angela“- Peter’s boss at the brewery- does NOT have a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame, Seth MacFarlane does. I was wrong to assume that I would gain his support for #AStarForCarrie based on his apparent love of Carrie Fisher and Star Wars alone. I forgot to mention what’s in it for him…
Hiring a staff of ALL FEMALE writers on at least one episode of Family Guy would make a statement in the #MeToo era that Fox is making some drastic changes to rectify past abuses by lending a predominantly-male written series to a roster of brilliant female writers. Support for the #OccupyFamilyGuy (A Sub-project of #AStarForCarrie) petition would be some much-needed, positive PR to clear the smell of stale hot dogs…
Some suggestions for an ALL FEMALE Family Guy writing staff: Alex Borstein, Cherry Cheva, Shannon Smith, Rachel MacFarlane, Wanda Sykes, Sarah Silverman, Judy Gold, Janeane Garafalo, Tina Fey, Thea Vidale, Amy Pohler, Margaret Cho, Tiffany Haddish, and SO MANY more under-utilized, brilliant, talented writers who happen to be female.
I would like to be considered for a “Family Guy” staff position as a HUGE fan of the show and creatrix of this idea, but PLEASE hire these engenious established writers before considering a baby writer like me. #OccupyFamilyGuy, like #AStarForCarrie, is not about me. It’s about making positive changes for Women in Hollywood.
Seth MacFarlane has created some truly strong female characters on all of his shows, I believe he would adore this idea…
I believe Seth MacFarlane would agree with me enough to show up at his office with a petition… So, come join me! I’m not creating an online petition for #OccupyFamilyGuy, you have to come to Fuzzy Door Productions in Beverly Hills (during office hours) & sign it in person! There’s something so magical about an ink signature on a paper petition. It means you really believe in a cause. I believe the force is with me on this one…
Wish me luck!
Please check my blog for updates, I went to jail for this. I'm not giving up.
May the Force be with You!
