“As we continue our expansion into original animation, a cornerstone of the FOX brand, we’re thrilled Tubi is joining the party with its first original animated series,” said Michael Thorn, President of Entertainment, FOX Entertainment. “With its counterculture roots, anti-establishment comedic POV and, as Adam said, an all-star team of cast and producers, THE FREAK BROTHERS is the perfect complement to Animation Domination and provides the ideal opportunity to not only grow Tubi’s audience, but take the animation genre to the next level in AVOD. Stay tuned for more original Tubi animated content soon.”

“We’re pleased to partner with FOX and Tubi on a new paradigm for distributing original animation to our consumers,” said Lionsgate President of Worldwide Television Distribution Jim Packer.  “The timeless humor of ‘The Freak Brothers’ has resonated with audiences for years, and this edgy comedy gives it a fresh and inventive spin for a whole new generation of fans.”

THE FREAK BROTHERS is based on comic book legend Gilbert Shelton’s “The Fabulous Furry Freak Brothers.” Critiquing the Establishment, while satirizing counterculture at the same time, the comic sold more than 45 million copies in 16 languages and was hailed by The Comics Journal as “One of the 100 Greatest Comics of the Century.” Starburns Industries and Pure Imagination Studios, the studios behind “Rick & Morty” and “The Simpsons: Brick Like Me,” handled the animation.

THE FREAK BROTHERS is executive-produced by Courtney Solomon (“AFTER,” “Mr. Church,” Cake”) and Mark Canton (STARZ’s “POWER UNIVERSE,” “300,” “Den of Thieves”), along with award-winning producers Alan Cohen and Alan Freedland (“King of the Hill,” “American Dad”).

THE FREAK BROTHERS’ theme song was created and performed by TDE recording artist Ray Vaughn. Anthony “Top Dawg” Tiffith, the Grammy Award-winning producer and founder of TDE, one of the most notable music labels, produced the music for THE FREAK BROTHERS and is an executive producer on the series, along with Mike Concepcion.

THE FREAK BROTHERS will anchor Tubi’s expansion into adult animation on FOX Entertainment’s free streaming platform, joining nearly 7,000 comedy movies and TV series on the platform, ranging from stand-up specials featuring classics like “Def Comedy Jam” and Jim Gaffigan, to live-action and edgy comedy including “Let’s Be Real” and classics like “Weekend at Bernie’s” and “Grosse Pointe Blank” and adult animation like “The PJs” and Australian sensation “Regular Old Bogan,” which is exclusively on Tubi, and additional titles to be announced for November.

TUBI UNVEILS ORIGINAL MOVIE EVENT “CORRECTIVE MEASURES,” STARRING GOLDEN GLOBE AND EMMY AWARD WINNER BRUCE WILLIS AND AWARD WINNER MICHAEL ROOKER

September 8, 2021

TUBI UNVEILS ORIGINAL MOVIE EVENT “CORRECTIVE MEASURES,” STARRING GOLDEN GLOBE AND EMMY AWARD WINNER BRUCE WILLIS AND AWARD WINNER MICHAEL ROOKER 

Based on the Fan-Favorite Graphic Novel, CORRECTIVE MEASURES is Directed, Written and Produced by Sean Patrick O’Reilly and Will Debut in 2022 

As part of its original content rollout strategy, Tubi announced today the original movie event CORRECTIVE MEASURES, a sci-fi action movie starring an award-winning ensemble cast, including Bruce Willis (“Die Hard,” “The Sixth Sense,” “Unbreakable”) and Michael Rooker (“Guardians of the Galaxy,” “The Suicide Squad,” “The Walking Dead).

Based on the popular graphic novel, CORRECTIVE MEASURES is written, directed and produced by Sean Patrick O’Reilly (“Howard Lovecraft,” “The Kingdom of Madness”) and is set in San Tiburon, the world’s most dangerous maximum-security penitentiary and home to the world’s most treacherous superpowered criminals where tensions among the inmates and staff heighten, leading to anarchy that engulfs the prison and order is turned upside down. Todd Masters of MastersFX (“Predator,” “Child’s Play,” “Legion”) will head the character and creature design. Produced by Arcana Productions LLC and executive-produced by The Exchange, CORRECTIVE MEASURES is slated for a Spring 2022 premiere on FOX Entertainment’s free streaming service. Jas Boparai, Corey Large, Johnny Messner and Steven Eads serve as executive producers. Michelle O’Reilly serves as producer.

“We’re excited to be harnessing the creative talent of Sean Patrick O’Reilly, Bruce Willis, Michael Rooker and Todd Masters to bring this celebrated comic book series to life,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer at Tubi. “CORRECTIVE MEASURES is a powerfully authentic and captivating sci-fi action film that speaks to our unwavering commitment to provide the Tubi audience with a broad array of compelling original content.”

“CORRECTIVE MEASURES is a project I’ve been wanting to see come to life from the pages of Arcana’s graphic novel series for a long time,” added O’Reilly. “Overseeing this project from script to screen has been an incredible journey, and to have my live-action directing debut at this level with so many talented cast and crew is truly a dream come true. Directing, writing and producing CORRECTIVE MEASURES was such an incredible experience and I cannot think of a better partner than FOX and Tubi for Arcana’s launch into live action productions.”

CORRECTIVE MEASURES takes place at San Tiburon, an Ubermax prison hidden in the Great Northwest, resided by monsters, cyborgs, and supervillains, all equipped with 24-hour power inhibitors and shock-collars. Most notorious among them is Julius “The Lobe” Loeb (Willis), a super genius sitting on an untraceable fortune. Warden Devlin (Rooker) is arguably as corrupt as his charges, with his sole interest in The Lobe’s riches, and has been trying to crack The Lobe for years without success. The fragile peace of the prison is thrown into chaos with the arrival of Payback (Dan Payne, “Watchmen”), a murderous vigilante with red intentions on the entire prison community, and Diego Diaz (Brennan Mejia, “Power Rangers”), a driver on a trumped-up sentence. As tensions among the inmates and staff heighten, anarchy engulfs the prison and order is turned upside down. CORRECTIVE MEASURES is the story of an everyman’s journey into darkness, as the actions the guards and staff are forced to take at the prison slowly render them no better than the men and women at the prison. The film also stars Tom Cavanagh (“The Flash”), Kat Ruston (“The 100”), Kevin Zegers (“Rebel”), and Hayley Sales (“Deadpool 2”).

Nat McCormick of The Exchange negotiated the deal for CORRECTIVE MEASURES and will be selling the movie at the Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Over the coming year, 140+ hours of all-new content are set to debut on Tubi, including Tubi Original Documentaries from FOX Alternative Entertainment; animated titles from FOX Entertainment’s Emmy Award-winning animation studio, Bento Box Entertainment; and premium independent-minded titles across the Black Cinema, thriller, horror, sci-fi, romance and Western genres.
