Tubi Announces Blink-182 Tom DeLonge’s Breaking Bear Animated Series


Blink-182 frontman Tom DeLonge is executive producing a new animated series for Tubi. breaking bear is an adult animated comedy greenlit as a Tubi Original, created by Julien Nitzberg (The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia) and produced by Cartel Entertainment (horror show, Twelve foreverand The day of the Dead) and To The Stars Media by Tom DeLonge (California Monsters, Not identified). breaking bear parodies the tropes of mob dramas, comically combining elements of Hanna Barbera’s Yogi Bear with the hit HBO series Mafia The Sopranos.

“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 after the resounding success of The Monster Brothersmaking Tubi a destination for adult humor.”

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.
