FOX gave a pilot presentation order for their upcoming The Flintstones sequel series, Bedrock. The adult comedy series will transition from the Stone Age to the new, shining, and enlightened Bronze Age. Twenty years after the original series, Bedrock catches up with the Flintstone family, with Fred just about to retire and Pebbles, now in her 20s, starting her own career. Elizabeth Banks, Stephen Root, Amy Sedaris, Nicole Byer, Joe Lo Truglio, and Manny Jacinto will lend their voices to the characters.
In addition to voicing Pebbles, Banks also serves as executive producer along with Max Handelman through Brownstone Productions. Brownstone’s Dannah Shinder and Lindsay Kerns are co-executive producers. Also, Kerns and Lon Zimmet co-wrote the pilot. Warner Bros. Animation and FOX Entertainment co-produce the series.
In a press release, the people involved in the series stated:
“Long before the Simpsons and Springfield, the Griffins and Quahog or even when the Belchers started serving burgers on Ocean Avenue, there were the Flintstones and Bedrock,” said Michael Thorn, President, Entertainment, FOX Entertainment.
“Their imprint on the animation universe is undeniable, and the idea of adapting it for today’s audience is a challenge we here at FOX are very much looking forward to taking on with Warner Bros., Elizabeth, and Lindsay. No pressure whatsoever, really,” he added.
“The Flintstones are the first family of primetime animation,” said Peter Girardi, Executive Vice President, Alternative Programming at Warner Bros. Animation. “Elizabeth and Lindsay have a brilliant take on these characters, and FOX and Brownstone are the perfect partners to bring them back to primetime. This is going to rock (sorry).”
