Turn off the Lights

Yabba-Dabba- Remake!

Looks like Fox’s resident cartoon family overlord, Seth MacFarlane has got the deal to produce The Flintstones.  Fox entertainment president Kevin Reilly said production on the animated series will begin production in Fall 2011 for a 2013 premiere on the Fox schedule. In a cross-studio collaboration, The Flintstones will be produced jointly by 20th Century Fox Television and Warner Bros Television. So how will it all play out? MacFarlane did shed some light on his plans for the remake: The characters will look the same but he'll introduce new technology, like "What is the animal version of an iPad?”

HA, I get it. That’s just exactly what television needs, a remake of a show by a guy whose own shows mirror said original show.  Right, Seth?

“Plus, I think America is finally ready for an animated sitcom about a fat stupid guy with a wife who’s too good for him.”

Hollywood is truly out of ideas.
