Tubi announced that the first episode of its new original animated series “The Freak Brothers” was the most watched show on the free streaming service since launching on November 14.
The episode had 80% more viewers than the second most watched series on the platform.
“In just its first week, we’re seeing viewers gather in masse to tune in to THE FREAK BROTHERS,” said Adam Lewinson, Chief Content Officer, Tubi. “Tubi’s new hit is a result of the synthesis between great content, stellar cast, superb marketing, new viewer engagement and organic viewership driven by our Content Personalization Engine.”
“The Freak Brothers” features the voices of stars including Woody Harrelson, John Goodman, Tiffany Haddish, and Pete Davidson and is Tubi’s first original adult animation. The eight-episode series chronicles the escapades of a trio of stoner anti-establishment characters and their cat who wake up from a 50-year nap after smoking a magical strain of weed in 1969 and must adjust to life with a new family in present-day San Francisco.
New episodes will come to the free streaming service every Sunday through December 26.
