FOX announced yesterday that Family Guy creator and developer, Seth McFarlane has been handed the keys to the Hannah-Barbara castle and the much loved cartoon from days of yore, The Flintstones, will return to TV screen in the fall of 2013.
After announcing its new fall season, and teasing the new seasons of hits like “Glee,” Fox had one more surprise up its sleeve at Monday’s upfront presentation for advertisers.
Seth MacFarlane, creator of Fox animated series “Family Guy,” “American Dad” and “The Cleveland Show,” told attendees that he was working on another show for 2013: a re-imagining of the first-ever primetime animated sitcom, “The Flintstones.”
“The very first cartoon character I drew at age two was Fred Flintstone,” said MacFarlane in a press release. “So it’s appropriate that events have come full circle, allowing me to produce the newest incarnation of this great franchise. 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.”
The network promised a “modern day” take on the stone age family, who celebrated their 50th anniversary last year.
