A New Cash Flow

And maybe DreamWorks Animation won't have to survive only on theatricals.

Netflix will release its first ever original kids series with DreamWorks Animation, the company announced Tuesday.

Based on the DreamWorks film "Turbo," which will be released this summer, "Turbo F.A.S.T." will debut exclusively on the streaming service in December. It joins a slate of original Netflix programming that includes the new drama "House of Cards" and new episodes of "Arrested Development" that will begin airing in May.

"Turbo: F.A.S.T." (which stands, obviously, for Fast Action Stunt Team) will be available in the 40 countries where Netflix offers its service. ...

Companies need diversified sources of income if they are ... you know ... going to carry on. Disney branched out from cartoons in the 1950s, and I'm informed the company is still around.

DreamWorks is taking steps in that direction. It doesn't make it easier for employees who are getting cut in the Great Readjustment, but it might mean the company is still around ten or fifteen years hence.
