Hanna-Barbera’s modern Stone Age family is coming back to screens in Bedrock, a follow-up to The Flintstones that catches up with the prehistoric clan 20 years later, in an adult animated comedy setting. FOX has ordered a pilot presentation for the show, first announced in 2021, and revealed a pedigreed comedy voice cast.
In Bedrock, Fred Flintstone (voiced by Stephen Root) is staring down retirement just as his 20-something daughter Pebbles (Elizabeth Banks) sets out to establish her own career. As the times turn from the Stone Age to the more enlightened Bronze Age, the residents of Bedrock are challenged by this new stage of human civilization.
Also starring are Amy Sedaris as Wilma Flintstone, Nicole Byer as Betty Rubble, Joe Lo Truglio as Barney Rubble and Manny Jacinto as Bamm-Bamm Rubble.
The series is produced by Warner Bros. Animation and Fox Entertainment. In addition to voice starring, Banks executive produces Bedrock alongside Max Handelman via Brownstone Productions, which has an overall deal with Warner Bros. Television Group, and Sam Register. Lindsay Kerns (Trolls: The Beat Goes On!, Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous) is a writer and co-executive producer, Emmy nominee Lon Zimmet (Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, Farzar) is a writer and executive producer.
