Netflix And DreamWorks Animation Launch First Ever Netflix Original Series for Kids

Netflix And DreamWorks Animation Launch First Ever Netflix Original Series for 
DreamWorks Animation's Summer 2013 Film Turbo Speeds onto the Streaming Service 
LOS ANGELES, Feb. 12, 2013 /CNW/ - Netflix, Inc. (Nasdaq: NFLX) and DreamWorks 
Animation SKG, Inc. (Nasdaq: DWA) today announced they will create the first 
ever Netflix Original Series for kids.  Based on the highly-anticipated 
DreamWorks Animation movie Turbo, premiering in theaters this summer, the 
Netflix series Turbo: F.A.S.T. (Fast Action Stunt Team) debuts exclusively 
this December in the United States 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." 
"Netflix boasts one of the largest and fastest-growing audiences in kids 
television. They pioneered a new model for TV dramas with House of Cards, and 
now together, we're doing the same thing with kids' programming," said 
DreamWorks Animation's Chief Executive Officer, Jeffrey Katzenberg.  
"DreamWorks is thrilled to be part of the television revolution." 
DreamWorks Animation's Turbo is a high velocity 3D comedy about an ordinary 
snail who dares to dream big – and fast.  After a freak accident 
miraculously gives him the power of super-speed, Turbo kicks his dreaming into 
overdrive and embarks on an extraordinary journey to achieve the seemingly 
impossible: competing in the Indianapolis 500.  The film, which stars Ryan 
Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena, Luis Guzmán, Bill Hader, Richard 
Jenkins, Ken Jeong, Michelle Rodriguez, Maya Rudolph, Ben Schwartz, Kurtwood 
Smith, Snoop Lion and Samuel L. Jackson, comes to theaters on July 19, 2013. 
Turbo's pursuit of racing greatness continues in Turbo: F.A.S.T.: an episodic 
animated television series that picks up where the feature film leaves off.  
It showcases 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. 
In addition to the original TV series Turbo: F.A.S.T., new DreamWorks 
Animation feature titles will be made available for Netflix members in the 
U.S. to watch beginning with the studio's 2013 film line-up. 
In 2012, Netflix members streamed more than 2 billion hours of kids content.  
Always commercial free, the content in the kids section of Netflix was curated 
in conjunction with ratings and reviews from Common Sense Media, a leading 
non-profit organization that provides independent, trustworthy ratings,

to character-based selections, the service displays rows of TV shows and 
movies organized by easy-to-understand genres such as superheroes, princesses, 
dinosaurs and girl power. The unique Netflix technology provides each member 
with a personalized experience based on preferences and favorites.
