How Much is Seth MacFarlane Worth?
The famous producer, filmmaker, comedian and actor, Seth MacFarlane earned $194 million wealth to his 43rd birthday. As he is still a busy person, surely, he can earn even more cash. But what is the source of his wealth? As many other stars of his stature, Seth MacFarlane developed several sources of his wealth. He started to accumulate his net worth in 1999, when he was appointed as the executive producer of “Family Guy” animation series. The project turned to be one of the most successful and long-lasting on American TV. The story about a “typical” American family and their talking dog with a dry martini in a hand (or it is better to say “in a paw”) impressed viewers all over the world and developed a large fan base.
As a result, “Family Guy” turned to be $1 billion project with DVD releases, merchandise goods and expensive commercials during the show. Thus the project creator signed $100 million 5 year deal with Fox, the channel, where “Family Guy” is on air. With the income more than $20 million per year, Seth MacFarlane is ranked one of the highest-paid TV writers and producers.
But even that solid income is not enough for Seth. He makes money through other business ventures too. He tried his hand as a musician and released his debut album, named “Music Is Better Than Words”, in 2011. The album occupied the 11th position at Billboard 200.
MacFarlane lent his famous face to a number of commercials, which turned to him with some extra cash. He advertised AXE Hair and some other brands.
In addition Seth MacFarlane tried his hand as an actor and appeared in “Gilmore Girls”, “American Dad!” (he served as a producer and writer for this project too), “Ted” etc. Not long ago he voiced a mouse Mike in a popular animation “Sing”, where he cooperated with such stars as Matthew McConaughey, Reese Witherspoon, Scarlett Johansson etc.
As you see, for now Seth MacFarlane needn’t to worry about money. But what was the start of his success story?
