Netflix is teaming up with animation giant DreamWorks to create its first original cartoon series for kids.
The series will be based on DreamWorks' upcoming movie Turbo, which is about a snail who gets the power of super speed after a freak accident.
The film, starring Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena and others, opens in US cinemas on July 19.
The spin-off cartoon series will be called Turbo: F.A.S.T. (Fast Action Stunt Team) and debut in December exclusively on the subscription video provider.
Netflix has been adding original programming to its roster of movies, and debuted the original series House Of Cards on February 1.
