Los Angeles – Netflix, Inc. and DreamWorks Animation SKG, Inc. have announced that they will create the first ever Netflix original series for kids. Based on the DreamWorks Animation movie Turbo, premiering in theatres this summer, the series Turbo: F.A.S.T. (Fast Action Stunt Team) debuts exclusively this December in the U.S. and across the globe in the 40 countries where Netflix offers its service.

“Families love Netflix, so creating an original series for kids was a natural for us. And we’re doing it in a big way by adapting Turbo, this year’s DreamWorks Animation summer tentpole movie,” said Ted Sarandos, Chief Content Officer of Netflix. “DreamWorks Animation has a long track record of creating incredibly successful characters and stories that delight people of all ages. We’re thrilled to add Turbo the series as well as all new DreamWorks Animation films, starting with their 2013 slate, to Netflix.”
