Seth MacFarlane will remake the popular animated television series The Flintstones, it has been revealed.
The Family Guy creator received a green light from Fox to reboot the 1960s cartoon series about Stone Age man Fred Flintstone, his family and his friends.
MacFarlane was on hand to address the news when the announcement was made earlier today at the network’s upfront presentation in New York.
“The very first cartoon character I drew at age 2 was Fred Flintstone. So it’s appropriate that events have come full circle, allowing me to produce the newest incarnation of this great franchise.
“Plus, I think America is finally ready for an animated sitcom about a fat, stupid guy with a wife who’s too good for him.”
