Turbo: F.A.S.T. is poised and ready to speed over to Netflix where it will 'headline DreamWorks' first original series'; which will be developed using Flash animation as opposed to the movie which was computer animated (Indiewire).
As one of the first projects to arrive out of a deal between DreamWorks and Netflix, it will leave Dreamworks with full creative control; where the studio is certain that the speed-crazy critter will prove a hit when it's aired later this week.
Here's what Executive producer Chris Prynoski had to say about:
Typically, if you are working on a show like this, you might get two sets of notes: one from DreamWorks and one from the network. But we don’t get notes from Netflix, which is cool.
Prynoski has been involved since back when DreamWorks considered making the 'show as a standalone special rather than a series':
As we started working on the special, they were like, 'Well, what if it were a series?' he recalls. With the studio's new game plan for Turbo: F.A.S.T., Prynoski was directing its first episodes when he received the offer to be the show's EP. "I was like, 'Yeah, this is fun! Let's do it!"
What did you think of the original Turbo film and do you have high hopes for the Netflix series?
