Animated series “Brickleberry” premieres Sept. 25



Move over, Yel­low­stone, there’s a new national park in town!

Brick­le­berry, co-produced by Fox 21 and Com­edy Cen­tral, is a new ani­mated series revolv­ing around a group of dys­func­tional park rangers at a second-tier national park. Ten episodes kick off on Com­edy Cen­tral at 10:30 p.m. Tues­day, Sep­tem­ber 25, fol­low­ing the fall pre­miere of Tosh.0. The series is from exec­u­tive pro­ducer Daniel Tosh (Tosh.0) and series cre­ators, writ­ers and exec­u­tive pro­duc­ers Waco O’Guin and Roger Black (MTV2’s Stankervi­sion).

Brick­le­berry voice tal­ent includes Kaitlin Olson (It’s Always Sunny in Philadel­phia) as Ethel, the smoking-hot top ranger who is trans­ferred to Brick­le­berry; Tom Kenny (Sponge­Bob SquarePants) as Woody, the head ranger who has good inten­tions, but not always the best ideas; Dave Her­man (Futu­rama) as Steve, the over­con­fi­dent Ranger of the Month; Jerry Minor (East­bound & Down) as Den­zel, the African-American ranger who isn’t com­fort­able in the woods; Roger Black as Con­nie, the unusu­ally strong and mas­cu­line female ranger; and Tosh as Mal­loy, the cud­dly, yet vul­gar and spoiled res­i­dent bear. Jim Sharp and Ian Fried­man are the exec­u­tives in charge of pro­duc­tion for Com­edy Central.

In the pre­miere episode, “Wel­come to Brick­le­berry,” long-running Ranger of the Month, Steve, feels threat­ened when a new ranger, Ethel, comes to work at the park to help turn it around. Steve does every­thing in his power to get her fired, even try­ing to expose her alco­holic past. Mean­while, Woody feels that his room­mate and pet bear cub Mal­loy could stand to lose a few pounds and puts him on a strict diet.

The Brick­le­berry Web site will fea­ture episode pre­views, high­lights and photo gal­leries of con­cept art­work from the upcom­ing episodes. In mid-September, the site will roll out vignettes to intro­duce each of the show’s main characters.

The Brick­le­berry Face­book page has spent the sum­mer giv­ing excited fans an early look at the pro­duc­tion, includ­ing ani­matic shots from Ben­to­Box Stu­dios, as well as video and pho­tos from the show’s appear­ance at San Diego Comic-Con. The page will be updated daily through­out the sea­son with new art­work from the season.
