Netflix’s first original kids series Turbo FAST will premiere on Tuesday December 24th, when the series will be made available in all territories where the streaming service has a presence, including the United States, Canada, the UK, Ireland and Latin America. On that date, the first five episodes of Turbo FAST will be made available to subscribers, with subsequent episodes premiering throughout the year.

Based on the DreamWorks feature film Turbo, Turbo FAST (Fast Action Stunt Team) picks up where the film leaves off, showcasing the world-traveling exploits of our snail hero and his tricked-out racing crew as they master outrageous new stunts and challenge any villain unlucky enough to cross their path. The series, which was green-lit by Netflix back in February, is produced by DreamWorks Animation Television and features the voices of Reid Scott (Veep), Ken Jeong (Community) and Kim Ly.

“We’ve long said that Netflix is revolutionising the television industry and now we are thrilled to officially be a part of it,” said Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation. “They have been fantastic partners whose vision has given our characters an amazing platform to be enjoyed by families around the world.”

While Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s Chief Content Officer, added: “We are excited to be working with the gifted storytellers at DreamWorks Animation to deliver Turbo FAST, our first original kids series, to families around the world this holiday season. With new episodes on their way in the coming months, kids will have something to look forward to all year.”
