Wild attended Westminster School, a Founders League prep school located in Simsbury, Connecticut. Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane also attended another Founders League school, the Kent School in Kent, Connecticut. Wild also wrote for The Late Late Show with Craig Kilborn during the show's first year.[3]

Career[edit]

Wild joined Family Guy in 2005, and has since written and produced multiple episodes, including:

In August 2010 Wild and his writing partner Alec Sulkin signed a three-year pact with 20th Century Fox TV.[4] The two will continue working on Family Guy and will develop their own television series.[5] Discussing whether or not the new series would be a live action or an animation, Wild said, "We've been throwing around both ideas."[6] Their joint production, Dads premiered on September 17, 2013.

He co-wrote the 2012 film Ted with Sulkin and MacFarlane and also wrote the 2014 film A Million Ways to Die in the West and Ted 2 (2015). He served as co-executive producer along with MacFarlane for MacFarlane's show, The Orville. Wild has been tapped to be the showrunner for the reboot of Animaniacs to air on Hulu in 2020.[7]

Through his English paternal grandfather Wellesley is a descendant of both Edward I (Longshanks) King of England (1272-1307) and Richard Colley Wellesley, 1st Marquess, brother of Arthur Wellesley, the Duke of Wellington.

Wild is also related to former CIA Director Porter Goss.
