Team-up: Windows 7 and Family Guy

Family GuySeem far-fetched?

Not exactly. Microsoft, in an effort to promote Windows 7, has teamed-up with FOX and Family Guy creator/voice actor Seth MacFarlane to bring in Windows 7 promotions in the TV special.

Set to air on November 8 at 8:30 p.m. Eastern and Pacific, the no-commercial-break show will feature Seth MacFarlane and Family Guy costar Alex Borstein in a collection of original animation segments, comedy skits, live-action performances of Family Guy musical numbers, and of course, celebrity guests.

The working title for the program is “Family Guy Presents: Seth & Alex’s Almost Live Comedy Show.”

Its not just TV shows that Microsoft is gonna target too. The company, along with FOX, is planning a 12-week college tour that’ll give college students a chance to test out Windows 7. Of course, with “Family Guy’s” Stewie and Brian aboard, there will surely be some entertainment – outdoor movie nights, online videos, etc. – that’ll come along with the tests. 😉

Excited? Catch a glimpse of what you can expect in the Windows 7/Family Guy show here.
