'The Flintstones' remake on indefinite hold
Deadline is reporting that MacFarlane has struck a deal to put the remake on indefinite hold citing his pre-existing commitments. MacFarlane is currently EP of "Family Guy," "American Dad" and "The Cleveland Show." He also is co-producing a 13-part docu-series "Cosmos: A Space-Time Odyssey." If that wasn't enough, MacFarlane also just wrote, directed and produced the upcoming Mark Wahlberg movie "Ted."
MacFarlane was planning to co-write "The Flintstones" remake. The publication is reporting that to meet the 2013 air date, production needed to begin last year. But it's clear someone was a bit too busy to meet this obligation.
The original animated series aired from 1960-66.
