The Flintstones Spinoff Bedrock Voice Cast
After almost two years after the initial announcement of the adult-animated project, Elizabeth Banks’ The Flintstones Spinoff Bedrock, has received an official pilot order from Fox and is now making progress. Deadline has confirmed that Banks will voice the character of Pebbles, while Stephen Root, Amy Sedaris, Nicole Byer, Joe Lo Truglio, and Manny Jacinto will also lend their voices to the characters of Fred, Wilma, Betty, Barney, and Bamm-Bamm, respectively.
Bedrock, which has Lindsay Kerns as its writer and Elizabeth Banks as both the voice of grown-up Pebbles and executive producer, will revisit the Flintstones twenty years after the original animated series, depicting Fred nearing retirement and Pebbles in her twenties starting her own professional journey.
According to the synopsis, the Flintstone family is featured in an adult-animated comedy set two decades after their original adventures. Fred is about to retire, while Pebbles, now in her twenties, is pursuing her own career. The story takes place as the Stone Age transitions to the Bronze Age, posing challenges for the residents of Bedrock that are compared to the difficulty of being hit by Bamm-Bamm’s club.
Banks and Max Handelman from Brownstone Productions, along with Sam Register and the Warner Bros. Television Group, serve as executive producers for a project that originates from Warner Bros. Animation and Fox Entertainment. “The Flintstones is the first family of primetime animation,” said Warner Bros. Animation Executive Vice President Peter Girardi. “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).”
The Flintstones Spinoff Bedrock is the most current television adaptation and a legendary Hanna-Barbera sitcom that aired from 1960 to 1966. Previous to this new version, the original program spawned nine animated spin-offs, including The Pebbles and Bamm-Bamm Show in 1971, as well as two live-action films.
