Seth MacFarlane, creator of Family Guy, American Dad and The Cleveland Show has plans to revive the classic prehistoric cartoon The Flintstones. The updated cartoon is set to hit Fox in 2013.
“Fox has long been home to iconic families like the Simpsons and the Griffins, so I have no doubt that the Flintstones and the Rubbles are going to fit right in on our air,” said Fox Entertainment chief Kevin Reilly. The show will begin production immediately, and is aimed for a 2013 launch.
“One of the first things that I drew when I was 2 years old was Fred Flintstone,” said MacFarlane. He will be joined as executive producer by Dan Palladino of Gillmore Girls and fellow Family Guy EP Kara Vallo.
