Breaking News – Tubi Greenlights Adult Animated Comedy “Breaking Bear”


The Wildly Original series will be executive produced by Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge and Cartel Entertainment

SAN FRANCISCO, August 15, 2022 – Tubi ( today announced that it has spotlighted the adult animated series BREAKING BEAR. Created by Julien Nitzberg (“The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia”) and produced by Cartel Entertainment (“Creepshow”, “Twelve Forever” and “Day of the Dead”) and Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Media (“Monsters of California ,” “Unidentified”), BREAKING BEAR parodies the tropes of mob dramas, comically combining elements of Yogi Bear with “The Sopranos.”

BREAKING BEAR follows the escapades of three bear siblings who decide they need to start dealing drugs in order to raise money and save their home after gas companies start fracking next to their cave. The bears soon enlist other forest animals in a scheme that pits them against oil companies, the Russian mafia, local Hell’s Angels, and polar bears who hate anything that isn’t white.

“When The Cartel presented a series with cartoon animals as gangsters, I knew it was an offer I couldn’t refuse,” said Adam Lewinson, chief content officer at Tubi. “This is the perfect project to expand our adult entertainment offering following the resounding success of THE FREAK BROTHERS, cementing Tubi as a destination for adult humor.”

Tubi continues to expand its strong adult anime collection, with both a library and original anime content for the platform. In May, three new films made for Tubi from FOX’s Emmy-winning animation house, Bento Box Entertainment, were announced as Tubi Originals, including: PASTACOLYPSE, from “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” co-creator Matthew Maiellaro; MILLENNIAL HUNTER, from comedian and actor Sam Taggart; and BIG BRUH, from writer, comedian and DUNCANVILLE co-producer Jerron Horton. Tubi’s adult animation offering also includes library titles such as ‘Mike Tyson Mysteries’, ‘The PJs’, ‘SuperMansion’, ‘Brickleberry’, ‘Kevin Smith: Smodimations’, ‘Alien News Desk’, “Nerdland” and more, in addition to THE FREAK BROTHERS original series, which stars Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Pete Davidson and Tiffany Haddish.

BREAKING BEAR is produced by Tom DeLonge (“Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker”), Stan Spry (“Creepshow”, “Day of the Dead”), Jeff Holland (“Creepshow”, “Day of the Dead”), Bradford Bricken (“Twelve Forever”) and Eric Woods (“Creepshow”, “Harland Manor”). Julien Nitzberg is also executive producer and showrunner.
