LOS ANGELES (AP) - Netflix is buffing up its credentials as a popular way for parents to keep their kids entertained.
The subscription video provider said Tuesday that it will team up with DreamWorks Animation SKG Inc. 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 getting in a freak accident.
The film, starring Ryan Reynolds, Paul Giamatti, Michael Pena and others, opens in theaters July 19. The series will be called "Turbo: F.A.S.T. (Fast Action Stunt Team)" and debut in December exclusively on Netflix.
Netflix has been adding original programming to its roster of movies, and debuted the original series "House of Cards" on Feb. 1.
