Characters & Cast
Freewheelin' Franklin Freek
Freewheelin’ Franklin, a laid-back, smooth talking Cannabis Cowboy from Texas, is the most street smart of the Freaks. He spent many years on the road before settling into the ‘60s San Francisco scene. Ladies love him and men wish they had his natural coolness. He is the best equipped among the ill equipped Freaks to handle life in 2020.
Fat Freddy Freekowtski
Fat Freddy is a rotund man-child whose wants in life are simple: food, weed, and to have a good time. What Freddy lacks in intellect, he makes up for in sincerity and childlike optimism. He’s Homer Simpson with a heart of gold and a pocketful of pot. While Phineas and Franklin are like brothers to him, Freddy’s best friend in the world is his cat, Kitty. They’re so close, they can talk to each other.
Phineas T. Phreakears
Phineas is the Freaks’ self-appointed leader, self-taught chemist, and self-declared intellectual. He spends his time inventing new mind altering substances and conspiracy theories. Hot tempered and committed to social change (as long as he doesn’t have to wake up before noon), Phineas has a soft spot for misfits and underdogs. He watches out for the other Freaks as much as he leads them into trouble.
Kitty is quick-witted and whip-smart. She has a sarcastic, critical point of view toward the Freaks and modern life. Kitty loves Freddy to death, but gets exasperated by his “dumb-dumbness.” Often frustrated by Freddy forgetting to feed her, Kitty schemes at a better life for herself away from the Freaks, but always ends up staying because in the end, they’re family.
Chuck and Charlie
Two kindred spirits the Freaks befriend in present day, Chuck and Charlie are a couple of weed-idiot savants always looking for the next side-hustle. These grrody weirdos have hearts of Acapulco Gold hidden beneath their crusty, unwashed exteriors.
Adam Devine / Blake Anderson
Gretchen is Harper’s more liberal and idealistic younger sister. A social-advocate lawyer, she’s very passionate and always hopping from one cause to the next.
La La Anthony
Harper is a no-nonsense ass kicking tech industry boss. She is a boss at work and the clear boss of the Switzer clan.
Noah is a people-pleasing man trying desperately to adapt to our fast-changing society. He tries to maintain some masculinity in his marriage, but it’s not really his forte.
Camille is the adopted daughter of Noah and Harper. While she’s not in the cool club at school, she’s the smartest in the family.
Liza del Mundo
The Switzer family pet dog (a whippet). Privileged and pampered and enjoyer of the finer things in a dog’s life.
