The Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences announced today that Family Guy creator Seth MacFarlane host the 85th Academy Awards, set for Feb. 24, 2013.
The creators and cast of Fox's American Dad! gathered at Comic-Con International to sing, dance, preview the upcoming season, and delve into some of the more controversial elements of the animated sitcom.
Ahead of next week's upfront presentations the networks announced the return of such shows as Once Upon a Time, Castle, Parenthood and Grimm.
I doubt that I'm the only person who recoils in something close to horror at the news that Seth MacFarlane is going to reboot The Flintstones for Fox. It's not just the lazy thinking on behalf of the execs who greenlit the idea ("Hey! It's a name people know, and we've got this guy who already makes cartoons for us!"), it's a complete misunderstanding of what makes MacFarlane's work and The Flintstones work. Can any good come of this?
One of the producers from Fox's American Dad cartoon (Or, as it's called around these parts, "Family Guy but not as funny") is breaking away from drawings and two-dimensions with new sitcom Connected.
Family Guy's Seth MacFarlane is heading to Hollywood with a movie he'll write, produce and direct - that may bastardize a newspaper comic classic.
