Apple TV+ ordered a new 13-episode CG animated series, BE@RBRICK, based on Medicom Toy’s popular collectible bear-shaped figures. DreamWorks Animation and Dentsu Inc. will produce with Meghan McCarthy (My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic, Centaurworld) on board as showrunner and executive producer.
The music-driven comedy follows young singer-songwriter Jasmine and her bandmates pursuing their dreams and inspiring others to do the same. But it won’t be easy to do when living in a world where everyone’s role is chosen for them and where the painted-on look you receive when you graduate from high school determines who you’ll be for the rest of your life. So, Jasmine realizes that for her world to change, she and her friends may have to make it happen themselves.
BE@RBRICK is Apple TV+ and DreamWorks Animation’s latest collaboration, joining Pinecone & Pony, based on the book “The Princess and the Pony” by New York Times bestselling author Kate Beaton and Doug Unplugs, based on Dan Yaccarino’s “Doug Unplugged” book series.
Alex Almaguer (TrollsTopia) serves as supervising producer, and Taylor Orci (Kipo and the Age of Wonderbeasts) serves as story editor. In addition, Athena Hofmann (Curious George) serves as line producer.
No release date was announced.
