Tom DeLonge’s To the Stars Media is adding another interesting projects to their resume. The latest project is a new adult animation series set to air on Tubi titled Breaking Bear.
The description for the series reads, “BREAKING BEAR follows the escapades of three bear siblings who decide they have to start selling 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 will pit them against oil companies, the Russian mafia, local Hell’s Angels and polar bears who hate anything that isn’t white.”
The series, described as a parody of mob dramas that’s a cross between Yogi Bear and The Sopranos, was created by Julien Nitzberg (The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia, Mike Judge Presents Tales From the Tour Bus) and will be receive production backing from both Cartel Entertainment as well as To the Stars.
“When The Cartel pitched a series with cartoon animals as mobsters, I knew it was an offer I couldn’t refuse,” said Adam Lewinson, chief content officer at Tubi, per Variety.
The official launch date for Breaking Bear has yet to be revealed.
