DreamWorks Adds to Netflix Slate

DreamWorks Animation and Netflix are adding to the slate of original series that will be available exclusively on the Internet TV streaming service.

Three new original kids series will join “Turbo FAST,” which debuted on Netflix last winter: “King Julien,” starring the lemur character from the Madagascar films; “Puss in Boots,” inspired by the cat from the Shrek movies; and “Veggie Tales in the House,” which will see Bob and Larry venture off the counter top to seek new recipes for faith-based values.

The partners will also premiere new episodes of their first original series “Turbo FAST” beginning April 4. For more about “Turbo FAST” click here.

“We could not be having more fun as we create this content for Netflix,” says Margie Cohn, head of television, DreamWorks Animation. “Each show is so diverse and the platform gives us so many opportunities to play with our characters in new and surprising ways. Our goal is to keep the audience always wondering what we’ll come up with next.”
