TUBI BEGINS PRODUCTION ON “SPREAD” STARRING ELIZABETH GILLIES, DIEDRICH BADER, TERI POLO, TIM ROZON AND HARVEY KEITEL

Inspired by a True Story, The Tubi Original Movie from Tubi Films and Cartel Pictures Follows an Idealistic Young Woman Who Takes a Job at an Outdated Adult Magazine

Bryan Craig, Blake Harrison, Keith Walker, Dia Frampton, Jonah Platt and Diora Baird Also Star with Elizabeth Gillies Also Serving as Executive Producer

SAN FRANCISCO, September 22, 2022 Tubi (www.tubi.tv) today announced it has started production on the Tubi Original Movie SPREAD starring Elizabeth Gillies (“Dynasty”), Harvey Keitel (“The Irishman”), Diedrich Bader (“Veep”), Bryan Craig (“Good Trouble”) Teri Polo (“Meet the Parents”), Blake Harrison (“The Inbetweeners”), Tim Rozon (“Schitt’s Creek”) and Keith Walker (“The Upshaws”).  From Cartel Pictures and set to debut in 2023, SPREAD follows an ambitious aspiring journalist (Gillies) who lands a temp job at an adult magazine run by an aging industry king (Keitel) and must reconcile her idealism as she strives to help the company succeed. The film, directed by Ellie Kanner (“Authors Anonymous”) and written and co-produced by Buffy Charlet (“Holy Ghost People”), also stars Dia Frampton (“Candy Coated Christmas”), Jonah Platt (“Uncoupled”), and Diora Baird (“Cobra Kai”).

“SPREAD is a smart comedy inspired by a true story that shows how an unexpected turn in one’s career aspirations can spark a journey of self-discovery,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “The fantastic Liz Gillies and the legendary Oscar© nominee Harvey Keitel are joined by an outstanding ensemble cast in this upcoming Tubi Original with a wholly unique voice from an incredibly funny and perceptive screenplay.”

SPREAD follows Ruby (Gillies), an aspiring journalist and staunch feminist, who has big dreams but has not done much to make them a reality. Broke and desperate, Ruby is forced to swallow her pride and take a temp job at SPREAD, an outdated adult magazine. There she discovers that despite the industry, this is just another office job with bad coffee, stale pastries, and unhappy employees. Planning to escape as soon as possible, Ruby somehow finds herself making a good impression on her boss, Frank Ferretti (Keitel), a former industry king who has been riding on his glory days. Needing a fresh take, Ferretti puts Ruby in charge of designing the company's new app. While trying to hide her status working in the adult business, Ruby steps into her own power and slowly changes her tune on an industry that she might have a chance to change for the better.

Inspired by screenwriter Charlet's real-life experience as a temp at Hustler magazine who rose to be an editor, SPREAD is executive produced by Elizabeth Gillies, and produced by Stan Spry (“Creepshow”), Eric Scott Woods (“Harland Manor”), and Graem Luis (“Day of the Dead”). Tubi’s Lewinson shepherded the project working closely with Charlet in the development process, and Kanner and the production team through the casting process.

TUBI GREENLIGHTS ADULT ANIMATED COMEDY “BREAKING BEAR”

Wildly Original Series to be Executive Produced by Blink-182 Frontman Tom DeLonge and Cartel Entertainment

SAN FRANCISCO, August 15, 2022 – Tubi (www.tubi.tv) today announced that it has greenlit the adult animated series, BREAKING BEAR. Created by Julien Nitzberg (“The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia”) and produced by Cartel Entertainment (“Creepshow,” “Twelve Forever,” and “Day of the Dead”) and Tom DeLonge’s To The Stars Media (“Monsters of California,” “Unidentified”), BREAKING BEAR parodies the tropes of mobster dramas, comically combining elements of Yogi Bear with “The Sopranos.”

BREAKING BEAR follows the escapades of three bear siblings who decide they have to start selling drugs in order to raise money and save their home after gas companies start fracking next to their cave. The bears soon enlist other forest animals in a scheme that will pit them against oil companies, The Russian Mafia, local Hell’s Angels and polar bears who hate anything that isn’t white.

“When The Cartel pitched a series with cartoon animals as mobsters, I knew it was an offer I couldn’t refuse,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “This is the perfect project to expand our adult animation offering after the stellar success of THE FREAK BROTHERS, cementing Tubi as a destination for adult humor.”

Tubi continues to expand its robust adult animation collection, with both library and original animated content for the platform. In May, three new made-for-Tubi movies from FOX’s Emmy Award-winning animation house, Bento Box Entertainment, were announced as Tubi Originals, including: PASTACOLYPSE, from “Aqua Teen Hunger Force” co-creator Matthew Maiellaro; MILLENNIAL HUNTER, from comedian and actor Sam Taggart; and BIG BRUH, from writer, stand-up comic and DUNCANVILLE co-producer Jerron Horton.

BREAKING BEAR is executive produced by Tom DeLonge (“Poet Anderson: The Dream Walker”), Stan Spry (“Creepshow,” “Day of the Dead”), Jeff Holland (“Creepshow,” “Day of the Dead”), Bradford Bricken (“Twelve Forever”), and Eric Woods (“Creepshow,” “Harland Manor”). Julien Nitzberg also serves as an executive producer and showrunner.

Julien Nitzberg is best known as the producer and director of the documentary feature “The Wild and Wonderful Whites of West Virginia” (produced by Johnny Knoxville and Jeff Tremaine). In the world of theater, Nitzberg wrote and directed the controversial comic operetta “The Beastly Bombing or A Terrible Tale of Terrorists Tamed By The Tangles Of True Love,” winner of the LA Weekly Theater Critics Musical of the Year Award, and most recently the acclaimed musical “For the Love of a Glove: An Unauthorized Musical Fable About the Life of Michael Jackson As Told By His Glove,” which will open in 2023 in Los Angeles with Stacey Sher attached to produce. Nitzberg was a producer and writer on Cinemax’s animated series “Mike Judge Presents Tales From the Tour Bus.” He has also written scripts for HBO, Showtime, Amazon FIlms, TNT, USA, IFC, Paramount Studios, CBS Studios and NBC.
