Netflix has many hit original series for adults including Orange is the New Black, Narcos, Jessica Jones, Daredevil. Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt, and House of Cards.
Now Netflix, is going to expand its marketing efforts by targeting a much younger demographic. According to TV Series Finale, the popular streaming service will be adding three original kids series.
Andy Yeatman, the Director of Global Kids Content for Netflix stated “With roughly half of our 75 million members regularly watching kids content, we’re happy to expand our original slate with these three great series” Yeatman went on to say “We know kids love Netflix and that’s in part because they never really outgrow us. We program and recommend new TV shows and movies from preschool through their teen years and into adulthood.”
The three shows are titled: The Greenhouse, Stretch Armstrong, and Lalaloopsy. The upcoming series are being developed to not only appeal to the little ones but to tweens as well.
Here are the descriptions for all three shows:
The Greenhouse is a live action series which is set in an elite boarding school called “The Greenhouse.” The students in the school are divided into two opposing houses who eventually team up to combat evil. The showrunners for the show are Paula Yoo (West Wing, Defiance, Eureka) and Giora Chamizer (Nutz Productions).
The second show, Stretch Armstrong is an animated action/comedy series about three teenagers who are accidentally exposed to chemicals from an experiment. And as a result, a team of unlikely heroes (Stretch Armstrong & Flex Fighters) are reborn. Following their newly acquired superpowers they embark on a series of adventures.
Then there’s the third show, Lalaloopsy. This series will be about the amazing misadventures of six friends and their pets in a playful environment. Through collective creativity, these friends can withstand anything together. Lalaloopsy aims to inspire viewers to express themselves creatively in a silly manner.
Lalaloopsy, will premiere this Fall with Stretch Armstrong and The Greenhouse being pushed back till 2017.
