Word of Seth MacFarlane's latest animated venture has just made the trades:
Seth MacFarlane is getting into the Flinstones business.
"One of the first things that I drew when I was 2 years old was Fred Flinstone," MacFarlane told a roomful of ad buyers gathered in New York on Monday.
Fox Entertainment chief Kevin Reilly said the series came together in the past couple of days and will begin production right away. The Flinstones will premiere on Fox in 2013. This follows recent animated orders Allen Gregory and Napoleon Dynamite, which will roll out in the fall and midseason, respectively.
Its always good to hear that our signatory studios are vying to capitalize on what's working while discovering new and, well .. not so new, ways to increase revenue. We'll be interested in seeing Mr. MacFarlane's interpretation of the Flintstones family and friends, as well as all new productions at Fox TV Animation.
