Netflix (NFLX) announces three new series aimed at children from DreamWorks Animation (DWA -1.6%) will be released late in the year.
The shows to be debuted will be King Julien, Puss in Boots, and Veggie Tales in the House.
Netflix and DreamWorks Animation signed a first-run agreement last summer. ...
I've seen some of these series in development at DWA TV's Glendale facility, but kept my beak closed about them. Veggie Tales, of course, was the property of a mid-west animation company which is no longer extant. (A decade ago, it went bankrupt following a lawsuit.)
The original Veggie Tales were bible-centered stories. No word yet on what this new series of VTs are centered on.
