(From io9) Dan Aykroyd and Judy Belushi, John Belushi’s widow, are turning iconic Saturday Night Live skit turned classic movie The Blues Brothers into a prime time animated TV show.

Bento Box, the company behind Bob’s Burgers, is producing the show, which it hopes to start shopping to networks in the fall.

With music playing a huge role, “the series chronicles the music, mayhem and comedy adventures of Jake and Elwood Blues, along with the characters within their master blues band.”

“It’s so great to accelerate Jake and Elwood at digital speed into the 21st century via the outstanding creative group at Bento Box,” Aykroyd said in a press release.

“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.”
