A video game that was popular in the 1980s — and was made into a short-lived TV series back then — will return to television, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Disney XD is developing a show tentatively titled “Pac-Man: The Adventure Begins,” an animated action comedy, the story reports. The arcade game was on TV before, as Hanna Barbera’s “Pac-Man: The Animated Series,” which ran on ABC from 1982-83.
The new show will be executive produced by Avi Arad (“The Amazing Spider-Man,” “The Avengers”) and Rick Ungar (“X-Men: Evolution,” “Biker Mice From Mars”).
The series is being prepped for a fall 2013 debut on Disney XD.
