We got our first look at FOX’s new sci-fi comedy The Orville earlier today when show creator Seth MacFarlane shared a photo on twitter, but now we are getting a much better idea of what this show is going to be with the release of the first trailer, which you can watch below. Here’s the synopsis:

In the 25th century, Earth is part of the Planetary Union, a far-reaching, advanced and mostly peaceful civilization with a fleet of 3,000 ships. Down on his luck after a bitter divorce, Planetary Union officer Ed Mercer MERCER (MacFarlane) finally gets his chance to command one of these ships: the U.S.S. Orville. Determined to prove his worth and write a new chapter in his life, Ed finds that task all the more difficult when the First Officer assigned to his ship is his ex-wife, Kelly Grayson (Adrianne Palicki).”

The pilot episode is written by MacFarlane and directed by Iron Man director Jon Favreau.

What do you think, will The Orville survive network TV?
