Netflix to Develop Line Friends Animated Series

-

Netflix announced today that Line Friends’ globally loved Brown & Friends characters will be expanded into a whole new world of storytelling when they come to Netflix as a Netflix original animated series.

The Netflix original series will be a non-verbal, slapstick comedy that tells the story of a diverse set of characters who are friends and neighbors living in the same town. The Netflix original animated series will be created as CG animation, inviting audiences of all ages into the world of memorable characters, including Brown, Cony, Sally, Moon, James, and others.

Aram Yacoubian, Director of Original Animation at Netflix, said “The band of adorable Brown & Friends characters has been a part of many fans’ daily lives since they created as stickers on Line mobile messengers, and now we’re excited to develop the expanded world for screens of all kinds to delight new audiences everywhere on Netflix.”

“Based on unparalleled creative capabilities, Line Friends has produced diversified content with its popular IPs, including videos, animations and games that millennials and Gen Z love,” said KD Kim, Vice President at Line Friends. “With an original animated series on Netflix, Line Friends will enhance its competitiveness in global content, and strengthen its presence in the entertainment industry, as well as its position as both a global creative studio and a producer of high-quality content.”

Los Angeles-based Kickstart Entertainment is a co-producer on the series.
