Tiffany Haddish and La La Anthony have been cast in the upcoming adult animated series “The Freak Brothers.” The stoner cartoon is based on the cult comic classic “The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers,” which debuted in 1968 and follows the adventures of a trio of pot-loving brothers. The new series has the brothers transported to modern-day San Francisco after smoking some magic weed, and they find their counterculture haven overrun by tech bros, real estate developers and Instagram influencers.

“The Freak Brothers” will also star Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Pete Davidson and rapper ScHoolboy Q, who will play himself in the series. Haddish will voice the crew’s “sardonic cat” named Kitty while Anthony will be the voice of Gretchen, an idealistic social-advocate lawyer.

Top Dawg Entertainment CEO Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith will serve as one of the executive producers and produced the show’s theme song. Three mini episodes were released on YouTube last year, which spawned the full production. The eight-episode first season will begin airing on Sunday, Nov. 14, 2021, on Fox’s streaming service Tubi with the season finale slated for Dec. 26.

TDE artist ScHoolboy Q spoke with Variety about his upcoming role and explained that it challenged him creatively.

“I love that I get to play myself. I don’t just mean playing ‘Q’ either, but the real me. I was high on ‘shrooms when I recorded my scenes. I wanted to do something outside of rap, creatively, and this was a great fit. It’s hilarious and it just ‘feels stoner’ like I am. The show is really about what it says it’s about. Working on my episode was laid-back and fun, while still challenging creatively and pushing boundaries,” he said.

Haddish, Harrelson and Davidson also serve as executive producers of the series.
