Voice cast of animated series ‘Fables’ revealed; Diljit Dosanjh on board

Bron Digital has signed up a slate of A-list voices for Fables, a new animated series that will launch the animated division of production group Bron Media Corp (Joker, Judas and the Black Messiah). The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter.

The series has signed a number of high-profile actors to the project, including Ricky Gervais, who will serve as the series’ narrator, Jemaine Clement, Natasha Lyonne, JB Smoove, Roman Griffin Davis, Alexa Demie, Diljit Dosanjh, Anthony Ramos, and Zack Woods. It is unknown (other than for Gervais) what roles these actors will be playing. However, according to THR, The Tortoise and The Hare, The Lion and The Mouse, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf will be featured in the series, giving a new, modern twist for contemporary audiences.

Bron Digital also plans to pair the series with an immersive online community, as well as interactive games themed around the series. Most aspects of the show will be created using Epic Games’ Unreal Engine, a real-time 3D digital creation tool originally designed for video games that could potentially change the game in the animation industry.

Beatclub, the music platform and marketplace set up by Grammy Award-winning artist and producer Timbaland, will produce select tracks for the series. Fables is executive produced by Bron’s Jason Chen and Aaron L. Gilbert together with Kevin Turen, Ashley Levinson, Andrew Barrer and Gabe Ferrari. Creative Wealth Media’s Jason Cloth, Suraj Maraboyina and Chris Cole serve as associate producers. Bron Releasing is handling global sales for the series.

Indian singer-actor Diljit Dosanjh is set to venture into Hollywood with Fables. Dosanjh made the official announcement on his Instagram account, which has got his fans excited worldwide.

Fables will be the first animated venture by Bron Digital, which will launch the animation segment of the banner. Azazel Jacobs is helming the project, and the scripts have been penned by Kyra Noonan.
