The Blues Brothers Are Now On a Mission to Return to TV

The Blues Brothers.

Jake and Elwood Blues might be heading back to the small screen for a Blues Brothers TV show that "would be Route 66 meets Glee, and it all goes to hell in a handbasket," according to one of its producers, former SNL writer Anne Beats. The pilot — which is still in its pitch phase, so don't get too worked up — finds Jake and Elwood out of jail and searching for Elwood's father. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi's widow Judy Belushi are onboard, with Aykroyd providing the voice of Jake and Elwood's parole officer and Belushi serving as one of the executive producers.
