Athena Hofmann (who co-produced the Curious George movies) will be the line producer. Assisting her will be supervising producer Alex Almaguer and story editor Taylor Orci.
Be@rbrick is the latest collaboration between Apple TV+, Dentsu Inc, and DreamWorks Animation, joining other successful shows such as Pinecone & Pony and Doug Unplugs.
