About American Dad!

Season 11 Premiere: Monday, Oct. 20, at 9 p.m. (ET/PT) on TBS

American Dad!The award-winning animated comedy American Dad! follows staunch GOP supporter and CIA agent Stan Smith (voiced by Seth MacFarlane) and the misadventures of his unconventional family in Langley Falls, Va. Stan's blissfully unaware wife, Francine (Wendy Schaal), has an unfaltering loyalty that allows her to turn a blind eye toward Stan's unabashed arrogance. Meanwhile, Stan constantly butts heads with his 18-year-old left-wing activist daughter, Hayley (Rachael MacFarlane), who knows just how to push her father's buttons, whether it's by helping the homeless, demanding women's rights, or advocating gun control. Hayley's 14-year-old brother is the geeky-yet-confident Steve (Scott Grimes), a kid who spends his time playing video games and obsessing about the opposite sex.

The Smith cabinet is rounded out by two rather unconventional members: Roger (MacFarlane), the sassy, sarcastic and routinely inappropriate space alien who is constantly trying on new disguises and, with them, new personalities, and Klaus (Dee Bradley Baker), the attention-starved goldfish with the brain of a German Olympic skier who always throws in his two cents, regardless of whether anyone is listening. Together, this screwball family of radically different personalities is just trying to figure out how to love and trust one another in a bi-partisan world. And with a guy like Stan in charge of national security, it's guaranteed to be one hilarious ride.

Since premiering on FOX in 2005, American Dad! has earned several industry accolades, including two Emmy® nominations for Outstanding Animated Program, two Annie Award nominations and seven Teen Choice Award nominations. In 2012, it took home the top television series prize at the ASCAP Film & Television Music Awards.

 

About Stan Smith

Celebrated around the world, Stan Smith is an American tennis player, whose namesake shoe was there when he won titles in major tournaments, including the 1968 U.S. Open and the 1970 Australian Open.  Transcending far beyond its success as merely a tennis sneaker, though, the shoe has evolved to become a revered style icon, beloved for its clean, streamlined aesthetic by designers, editors and collectors alike.  As a result, the shoe has been introduced in numerous colors and fabrics over the years, in addition to the classic, all-white with-green-ankle-tab option.
