Dan Aykroyd Pairs With Former ‘SNL’ Writer to Create ‘Blues Brothers’ TV Series

The antics of the comic-musicians Jake and Elwood Blues — the Blues Brothers — have been seen on "Saturday Night Live" and in feature films, and now one of the original Blues Brothers is developing a TV series based on the act, NBC reports.

Dan Aykroyd, who was half of the original Blues Brothers with the late John Belushi, has joined forces with former “SNL” writer Anne Beatts to create the series. Also involved in the project is Belushi’s ex-wife Judy.

Beatts told the website that the idea for the program "would be ‘Route 66’ meets ‘Glee.’"

  1. I wonder if they will use the Lamont Cranston Band for their music.
