“The Flintstones” are coming back with a new animated, primetime series, but this one won’t be for kids. It’s described as an “adult” show, which means it’s geared toward grown-ups.
There’s no word on a network yet.
It’s being produced by ELIZABETH BANKS, who’s been racking up a lot of credits behind the camera these days. She wrote, directed, and produced the upcoming “Charlie’s Angels” movie, and appears in it as Bosley.
“The Flintstones” originally ran on ABC for six seasons, from 1960 to 1966. Since then there have been several revivals and spin-offs, plus two live-action movies.
SETH MACFARLANE was also developing a reboot for Fox in 2011, but it fell through.
