EOne and POP Family’s new hybrid animated series “Alien TV” is preparing to land at Netflix later this summer and on Australia’s free-to-air Nine Network  this month.

“Alien TV” will launch with 26 half hour episodes targeted at kids aged 6-11 years and their families. The series follows the slapstick misadventures of an extra-terrestrial television news crew as they try to understand life on a newly discovered planet – Earth.

 “’Alien TV’ is a great example of what international co-productions are all about,” says Carmel Travers, chief executive officer, POP Family and producer, “Alien TV .” “I am thrilled that through Netflix and Nine, this irreverent comedy will be beamed worldwide giving audiences everywhere a funny look at the world - as ‘aliens’ might see us," she continued.

The show is co-produced by Entertainment One and POP Family Entertainment, in collaboration with Netflix for global release.  The Nine Network commissioned the series in Australia, produced with financial support of Create NSW.

“Our new show ‘Alien TV’ takes recognizable situations and transforms them into side-splittingly hilarious visual gags that have an instant and universal appeal for both kids and parents,” says Olivier Dumont, president, family brands, eOne. ’AlienTV’ demonstrates our ongoing commitment to bringing audiences high-quality, original kids programming on the very best platforms and we really believe it has the potential to be a big hit when it debuts this summer.
