Not content to have a mere three animated comedies on the Fox schedule, Family Guy mastermind Seth MacFarlane is developing a fourth ... and it's a doozy. Deadline reports that MacFarlane has gotten the green light to mount a new version of The Flintstones, the original prime-time cartoon. It's the result of years of negotiation, and MacFarlane intends for the show to potentially spawn movies, too. Considering the source, we expect Dino to suddenly get a lot more lines. [Deadline]
