Hi everyone, Bryan Here…

The Blues Brothers‘ are back. Dan Aykroyd and John Belushi’s widow Judy Belushi have teamed with the production company that does ‘Bob’s Burgers‘ to produce an animated comedy series during Primetime hours that features the adventures and music of ‘The Blues Brothers‘. The series will feature Jake and Elwood Blues as they live in the modern world of technology today and try to sign new acts, avoid trouble, and sing the blues. It will also take place in Chicago.

Music will be a star of the show for sure and will feature new music as well as old classics in each episode. “The show will be the Blues Brothers living in America and utilizing all new technology to make and promote their own records, seek out and record new artists and avoid law enforcement – and all while fighting for truth, justice and a better breakfast sandwich,” Aykroyd said. This project has been trying to get off the ground for more than a decade, but it never came to fruition.

According to Deadline, “It is such a privilege for us to be able to produce the work of the very same people who played such an instrumental role in creating one of the most iconic, multi-faceted comedy and music brands of all time,” Greenberg said. “Now we all have the rare opportunity to translate the timeless comic genius of Dan and John from live-action to animation, while offering an entirely new generation of Blues Brothers fans the chance to appreciate them.”

I’m up for this project for sure. I’m glad it’s not a reboot with different actors, but rather this animated series. The show will be shopped around the networks, and I just hope it lands at someplace like FX, so it can give the series a little edge rather than something like ABC or NBC.

Now I need four fried chickens and dry white toast.
