SPACEBALLS the animated television show? President Skroob would be proud.

Plans are afoot for a weekly SPACEBALLS TV program, with Mel Brooks once again deeply involved with the project. MGM TV, Berliner Film Company (a German film producer) and Brooks are all working on a plan to return to his comedic sci-fi franchise that began as a 1987 film. The funnyman will be one of the producers on the SPACEBALLS pilot episode, supervise the writing of other episodes on the series and reprise the roles of Yogurt and President Skroob. Thomas Meehan, Brooks' co-writer on the SPACEBALLS film screenplay, will also collaborate with Brooks again on the TV show, supverising the writing department and helping produce the series.

If the show becomes a reality expect the SPACEBALLS series to not just parody the genre of science fiction films and television but also fantasy works, such as THE LORD OF THE RINGS.

I am down for this, but i hope that it is adult oriented and not watered down for kids.

Uh oh, I smell another 'Police Academy: The Animated Series' situation.

If it's for prime time you can bet it will be a bit watered down.
