Buckle up for some throwback adult entertainment with a sharp modern makeover: The Fabulous Furry Freak brothers are back! The world premiere mature minisode of The Freak Brothers, “Kentucky Fried Freaks,” debuted on YouTube Wednesday, featuring the voices of Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Pete Davidson and Tiffany Haddish, as well as Adam DeVine, Blake Anderson, and John Di Domenico guest starring as Donald Trump.
In addition to four planned misodes, the voice stars and series creators/executive producers Mark Canton and Courtney Solomon are working on an 8 x 22′ episode package for a fall premiere. The adaptation of Gilbert Shelton’s 50-year-old underground comic sensation was announced at Comic-Con last year.;
Synopsis: In 1969, life in San Francisco consists of free love, communal living and political protest. Freewheelin’ Franklin Freek (Harrelson), Fat Freddy Freekowtski (Goodman), Phineas T. Phreakers (Davidson) and their mischievous, foul-mouthed cat, Kitty (Haddish), spend their days dodging many things — the draft, the narcs and steady employment – all while searching for an altered state of bliss.
But after partaking of a genetically mutated strain of marijuana, the Freaks wake up 50 years later to discover a much different society. Quickly feeling like fish out of water in a high-tech world of fourth-wave feminism, extreme gentrification and intense political correctness, the Freaks learn how to navigate life in 2020 — where, surprisingly, their precious cannabis is now legal.
The Freak Brothers is written and produced by Highly Gifted‘s Daniel Lehrer and Jeremy Lehrer, and Silicon Valley‘s Dave Krinsky and John Altschuler — their King of the Hill colleagues Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland are showrunners. Voicers DeVine and Anderson also exec produce with Canton and Solomon (WTG Enterprises), Gilbert Shelton and Manfred Mroczkowski; Jeffrey S. Edell is co-exec producer.
Animation is provided by Starburns Industries (Rick and Morty) and Pure Imagination Studios (The Simpsons).
