A Warner Bros spokesperson told The Wrap that the Warner Bros. Animation and Elizabeth Banks’ production company Brownstone Productions will be working on a new Flintstones series. Yabba Dabba Doo!
The series is an animated adult comedy series based on beloved characters from The Flintstones cartoon. Currently in the early stages of preliminary development, the story will be original even though it’s using the same Flintstones characters.
The series is result of Brownstone Productions’ recent re-signing deal with Warner Bros. TV. Warner Bros. Animation will be producing the new Flintstones series. They have yet to announce which network the series will air on. No other information on the series is available yet either, including the story and cast members.
The original Flintstones cartoon was a Hanna-Barbera production that first came out in 1960. It was also the first animated series to be given a primetime slot. The show featured Fred and Wilma Flintstone and their daughter Pebbles and pet dinosaur Dino, and their friends Barney and Betty Rubble with son Bamm-Bamm. They all live in a town called Bedrock in the Stone Age time period. The show also had a catchy theme song that plays at the start and end of each episode.
Elizabeth Banks is well known for her acting as Effie Trinket from The Hunger Games movie series and Gail Abernathy-McKadden in the Pitch Perfect movie series. Since making her directorial debut in Pitch Perfect 2, Banks has gone on to direct, write, produce and star in the upcoming reboot of Charlie’s Angels and play as Tori Breyer in the new superhero horror film Brightburn.
