Wildly Original Series to be Executive Produced by Blink-182 Frontman Tom DeLonge and Cartel Entertainment

SAN FRANCISCO, August 15, 2022 - Tubi (www.tubi.tv) today announced that it has greenlit 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 mobster dramas, comically combining elements of Yogi Bear with "The Sopranos."

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.

"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, Tubi. "This is the perfect project to expand our adult animation offering after the stellar success of THE FREAK BROTHERS, cementing Tubi as a destination for adult humor."

Tubi continues to expand its robust adult animation collection, with both library and original animated content for the platform. In May, three new made-for-Tubi movies from FOX's Emmy Award-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, stand-up comic 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 original series THE FREAK BROTHERS, which stars Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Pete Davidson and Tiffany Haddish.

BREAKING BEAR is executive 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 also serves as an executive producer and showrunner.

Julien Nitzberg is best known as the producer and director of the documentary feature "The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia" (produced by Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine). In the world of theater, Nitzberg wrote and directed the controversial comic operetta "The Beastly Bombing or A Terrible Tale of Terrorists Tamed By The Tangles Of True Love," winner of the LA Weekly Theater Critics Musical of the Year Award, and most recently the acclaimed musical "For the Love of a Glove: An Unauthorized Musical Fable About the Life of Michael Jackson As Told By His Glove," which will open in 2023 in Los Angeles with Stacey Sher attached to produce. Nitzberg was a producer and writer on Cinemax's animated series "Mike Judge Presents Tales From the Tour Bus." He has also written scripts for HBO, Showtime, Amazon FIlms, TNT, USA, IFC, Paramount Studios, CBS Studios and NBC.

Tom DeLonge is an award-winning producer, director, author, researcher, multi-platinum recording artist and entrepreneur, originally known for his songwriting and vocals as Blink-182's front man. Today, DeLonge dedicates his time to his entertainment and media company, To The Stars Media, as well as his band Angels & Airwaves. During his diverse career, DeLonge has written, directed and produced feature films, animated shorts, episodic series and music videos, including the animated short "Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker," which won best animation at the Toronto International Short Film Festival and the feature film "Monsters of California," which will premiere later this year.
