Starting with the biggest, and frankly just annoyingly scary stories in the bunch, according to Deadline, cartoon “expert” (or devil to some people) Seth MacFarlane is finalizing a deal with FOX that will give him the green light to reboot the classic cartoon The Flintstones for both television and film. Frankly, there is no way to respond to this without wanting cause physical injury to someone. But needless to say, it’s a bad idea.
In other news, CBS has picked up three more pilots to series including “The 2-2 (formerly known as Rookies) and Unforgettable (formerly known as The Rememberer) and the comedy How To Be a Gentleman” according to TV By The Numbers.
And finally, NBC in addition to the clips we saw on Sunday, has released full four minute trailers for many of their new series. Each trailer includes loads of footage not seen in the clips:
The Playboy Club
Are You There, Vodka? It’s Me, Chelsea
Up All Night
