The Cleveland Show writer J Lee is teaming up with Seth MacFarlane in order to create a show about two black dudes. And also J Lee is black. 2 Black Dudes is a single camera comedy to be produced by Fox. The story goes like this: "two cousins with two completely different perspectives on life, now live in Los Angeles and continuously bump heads on everything from religion, sex, politics, and being black in America all the way down to who’s the best ninja turtle." Lee is writing, MacFarlane is executive producing and Mike Mariano of Raising Hope fame is showrunning. Lee has been with MacFarlane for some time starting as a receptionist for Family Guy, then eventually writing for the series alongside its spinoff The Cleveland Show and American Dad.
