The Cleveland Show
Fuzzy Door Productions is an American film and television production company founded by Seth MacFarlane in 1998. The company's productions include animated series Family Guy, American Dad!, the Family Guy spinoff The Cleveland Show, the live-action sitcom The Winner, the science documentary series Cosmos: A Spacetime Odyssey and the sci-fi comedy drama series The Orville. Originally part of 20th Century Studios, the company signed a deal with NBCUniversal in 2020, subsequently basing its headquarters at Universal City Studios in Universal City and naming Erica Huggins as its president that same year.
MacFarlane's two animated series Family Guy broadcast on Fox and American Dad! broadcast on TBS will continue to be produced on the Fox studios lot while his live action series The Orville which is scheduled to air its second extended season on Hulu will continue to be filmed at Universal City Studios and in Westlake, California.
The name of the company comes from the leopard-printed fake fur-covered door to the house MacFarlane lived in when he attended Rhode Island School of Design as an undergraduate in animation. The house itself also went by the nickname the Fuzzy Door during MacFarlane's residence and was the location of many "Fuzzy Door" parties. The company logo was designed by Cory Brookes, a friend and housemate of MacFarlane's at the Fuzzy Door residence. The logo was updated in 2019, featuring a more abstract design of the door and no longer featuring the fur-pattern design, instead colored in a plain white with blue background. In 2020, the new logo was enhanced, featuring the door animating open and the text irising in as it does so, over a background that has a darker shade of blue.
