Netflix Plans New Kids Series 'Kong'

The series will debut with a full-length feature film that will be followed by 12 half-hour episodes beginning in 2016.

Set in 2050, this CGI animated series is a fresh take on the classic King Kong story. In "Kong," the future looks bright for San Francisco’s Alcatraz Island since its transformation into the most impressive Natural History and Marine Preserve on the planet. But when the star attraction suddenly goes ape and Kong becomes public enemy number one, the villain that framed him is free to unleash an army of gigantic robotic dinosaurs on the unsuspecting world.

“We’re thrilled to be working with Avi Arad who has made some of the most successful action and adventure franchises today and whose 'Pac-Man and the Ghostly Adventure' series has been very popular on Netflix around the world,” says Ted Sarandos, chief content officer, Netflix. “With 41 Entertainment as

our partner on this, we continue to work with some of the finest animation studios around the world to create shows that will appeal to kids of all ages globally.”
