Dan Aykroyd is getting the band back together. Deadline reports the actor is developing an animated series based on The Blues Brothers.
Aykroyd played Elwood Blues alongside John Belushi’s Jake Blues in the recurring SNL sketch and 1980 feature film.
The animated series will, like the sketches and film, “chronicle the music, mayhem and comedy adventures of Jake and Elwood Blues, along with the characters within their master blues band.” Aykroyd is developing the show alongside Belushi’s widow, Judy Belushi, and Bento Box Entertainment.
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.”
