Elizabeth Banks’ New Flintstones Series Bedrock Has An Incredible Voice Cast

“The Flintstones” spin-off “Bedrock” is closer than ever to becoming a reality … and she’s bringing along quite the roster of talent with her. Deadline reports that the cast will include Stephen Root as Fred Flintstone, Amy Sedaris as Wilma, Nicole Byer as Betty Rubble, Joe Lo Truglio as her husband Barney, and — get this, folks — Manny Jacinto as Bamm-Bamm. Just when we thought the cast of the 1994 movie couldn’t possibly be topped (which, you may remember, included John Goodman, Rick Moranis, Rosie O’Donnell, Halle Berry, Elizabeth Perkins, Kyle MacLachlan, Sheryl Lee Ralph, and Elizabeth freaking Taylor), the animated series all but said, “Hold my prehistoric equivalent of beer.”

Described as a “primetime animated adult comedy series,” “Bedrock” comes from Warner Bros. Animation and Fox Entertainment. In addition to Banks in her big creative role behind the scenes, the series will be written by Lindsay Kerns and Lon Zimmet, both of whom will also serve as executive producers. Again, I’m not entirely sure how much people are eager for a decades-later spin-off series for a cultural touchstone as ubiquitous as “The Flintstones,” but I guess we’ll find out for ourselves soon! No details are known about exactly when this new show will premiere, but stay tuned to /Film for new and all updates on the project.
