Yabba Dabba Doo! Fox Entertainment, Warner Bros. Animation and ]Elizabeth Banks have joined forces to develop “Bedrock”, a primetime animated adult comedy series continuing the story of everyone’s favorite modern Stone Age family, the Flintstones. The pilot script will be written by Lindsay Kerns (“Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous,” “DC Super Hero Girls,” “Trolls: The Beat Goes On!”), with Banks voicing the character of “Pebbles Flintstone,” in addition to her role as a producer.
The logline: “Bedrock” catches up with the Flintstone family two decades after the original, with Fred on the brink of retirement and 20-something Pebbles embarking on her own career. As the Stone Age gives way to a shiny and enlightened new Bronze Age, the residents of Bedrock will find this evolution harder than a swing from Bamm-Bamm’s club.
In addition, Fox Entertainment’s free streaming platform Tubi has acquired the AVOD rights to all six seasons of the iconic series “The Flintstones,” including all 166 episodes, which will begin streaming on Tubi on May 1.
Produced by Hanna-Barbera Productions, “The Flintstones” was television’s first primetime animated series — airing for six seasons, spanning 166 episodes – and was also the first animated program nominated for a Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Comedy Series. This past fall, the franchise celebrated its 60th anniversary.
