Netflix On Board eOne & POP Family’s Alien TV


The series Alien TV, targeted to kids 6 to 11 and their families, is set to premiere globally on Netflix later this summer and on Australia’s free-to-air Nine Network in June.

The show follows the slapstick misadventures of an extraterrestrial television news crew as they try to understand the wild, baffling and sometimes “just-plain-weird” life on Earth. It combines real-world imagery with CGI animation.

The 26×30-minute series is co-produced by Entertainment One and POP Family Entertainment, in collaboration with Netflix for a global release. The Nine Network commissioned the series in Australia, produced with financial support of Create NSW.

Alien TV is a great example of what international co-productions are all about,” said POP Family Entertainment CEO and Alien TV Producer Carmel Travers. “I am thrilled that through Netflix and Nine, this irreverent comedy will be beamed worldwide giving audiences everywhere a funny look at the world—as ‘aliens’ might see us.”

“Our new show, Alien TV, takes recognizable situations and transforms them into side-splittingly hilarious visual gags that have an instant and universal appeal for both kids and parents,” said eOne’s Olivier Dumont, president of family brands. “Alien TV demonstrates our ongoing commitment to bringing audiences high-quality, original kids programming on the very best platforms and we really believe it has the potential to be a big hit when it debuts this summer.”
