NetFlix and DreamWorks Planning to Launch a Turbo Series

Entertainment streaming giant Netflix and DreamWorks Animation have jointly announced that they will be working together in order to produce the first ever Netflix Original Series for young audiences, and will be basing it on DreamWorks’ upcoming 2013 release Turbo. The new CG animated show, which will be titled Turbo: F.A.S.T. (Fast Action Stunt Team) will debut exclusively on Netflix’s service this December in the US and 40 other countries where the service is being offered. The service has already managed to stream more than 2 billion hours worth of kids’ content last year.

Turbo is a CG animated comedy that focuses on the exploits of an ordinary snail who dreams of being fast. After a freak accident grants him with super-speed, the titular snail embarks on an extraordinary journey that will culminate in entering the Indie 500. The film boasts of a star-studded voice cast that includes Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Micheal Pena, Luis Guzman, Bill Hader, Richard Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood Smith, Snoop Lion and Samuel L. Jackson.

Turbo: F.A.S.T. will pick up where the film leaves off, and will showcase the world-traveling exploits of Turbo and his ragtag racing crew as they try to master outrageous new stunts and challenge any villain unlucky enough to cross their path.

“Netflix boasts one of the largest and fastest-growing audiences in kids television. They pioneered a new model for TV dramas with [Netflix Original Series] House of Cards, and now together, we’re doing the same thing with kids’ programming,” said DreamWorks Animation’s Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Katzenberg. “DreamWorks is thrilled to be part of the television revolution.”
