AMERICAN DAD - VOLUME 2
AMERICAN DAD is back to salute a second season of laughs. The subversive series revolves around STAN SMITH (Seth MacFarlane, Family Guy), a CIA agent based in Langley Falls, Virginia, who is an undisputed weapons expert and proud family man. Stan is constantly on the alert for terrorist activity and will go to extremes to protect his beloved America and keep his homeland secure. Just check out the terror-alert dial on his fridge and his knee-jerk reaction to shooting holes in the toaster whenever the French toast – sorry, “freedom” toast – pops up. Stan’s wife is the sweet, Edith Bunker-esque FRANCINE (Wendy Schaal), who has carefully hidden her party-girl personality for the sake of the conservative man she loves. But make no mistake, Francine’s doting persona has its limits, and she’s not afraid to put her man in his place when it’s absolutely, totally, 100 percent necessary. Stan is constantly butting heads with his ultra-liberal, 18-year-old daughter HAYLEY (Rachael MacFarlane), who is forced to go through an airport-style security check every time she comes home from a day of Women’s Studies classes at the local community college. Hayley’s 13-year-old brother is the hapless, geeky STEVE (Scott Grimes), a kid who seems to be on the verge of puberty, but just can’t quite make it past the squeaky awkwardness. The Smith household is rounded out by two rather unconventional members. There’s ROGER (Seth MacFarlane), the sarcastic space alien Stan rescued from Area 51 who lives in the Smiths’ attic. Roger has a penchant for Chockadiles and Chardonnay, but resents the fact that he’s forced to stay inside the house and watch “I Love the ‘80s” marathons, especially when he just wants to run to the Circle K for a pack of smokes. Then there’s KLAUS (Dee Bradley Baker), a lascivious, German-speaking goldfish – the result of a CIA experiment gone seriously wrong – who has an unhealthy crush on Francine. Unfortunately for Klaus, the closest he’ll ever get to a date with her is the spin cycle with her sports bra. The goal for this eccentric family full of radically different personalities is to continue to love and trust each other during this increasingly stressful time in which something could go down somewhere, in some way, at some point. And with a guy like Stan trying his best to make America safer, it’s bound to be a hell of a ride from yellow, to orange, to red, and back again. Otherwise, the terrorists have just plain won. Seth MacFarlane, Mike Barker and Matt Weitzman serve as co-creators and executive producers. AMERICAN DAD is produced by Twentieth Century Fox Television and is distributed by Twentieth Century Fox Television Distribution.
