A new “Flintstones” TV series is in the works from Warner Bros. Animation and Elizabeth Banks’ Brownstone Productions, Variety reports.
“The project, which is in early development, is described as a prime-time animated adult comedy series based on an original idea featuring characters from ‘The Flintstones,'” Variety reports, noting that no network is currently attached to the project, which will be produced by Warner Bros. Animation.
The original “Flintstones” series ran on ABC for six seasons between 1960 and 1966, with more than 150 episodes produced.
“There have been multiple attempts at new versions of the show over the years, including short-lived series like ‘The New Fred and Barney Show’ and ‘The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show,'” Variety notes. “There have also been several ‘Flintstones’ TV specials as well as two live-action films. Seth MacFarlane also developed a reboot of the series for Fox back in 2011, but that project ultimately did not go forward.”
