The American publication has reported that US streaming service Peacock has handed out a ten-episode, straight-to-series order for the show.

It will be a live-action series, which sources are saying will be a prequel about the foul-mouthed teddy bear.

MacFarlane, who co-wrote and directed the two Ted films, is attached to write the script and executive produce the show.

He is also said to be near a deal to return to voice the title character.

On its Twitter account, Peacock shared the Hollywood Reporter story and wrote: "Welcome to the flock, Seth MacFarlane."

It is currently unclear when the show will be released and where it will air in Ireland.

The first Ted film was released in 2012 and told the story of a man (Mark Wahlberg) whose childhood wish of bringing his teddy bear to life came true.

The movie was a box-office hit, with a sequel being released three years later.
