Netflix has shared the trailer, key art and images from Lost Ollie, the new limited series premiering on the streaming service on August 24. Lost Ollie consists of four 45 minute episodes.
Lost Ollie is an epic adventure about a lost toy who braves the many dangers of childhood as he searches the countryside to reunite with the boy who lost him; and the story of the boy who lost more than a best friend.
It’s a heartwarming tale for the child in us all, remembering those special souls that we’ve lost but who forever changed our lives. The four-part limited series was inspired by the book Ollie’s Odyssey by renowned author and illustrator William Joyce.
Shannon Tindle (Kubo and the Two Strings, Coraline) serves as creator, writer and executive producer. The series was directed by Academy Award winner Peter Ramsey (Spider-Man: Into the Spider-verse), who also serves as executive producer.
Shawn Levy and Josh Barry executive produce for 21 Laps Entertainment along with Emily Morris as co-executive producer. Brandon Oldenburg and Lampton Enochs also executive produce.
21 Laps is the production company behind PGA Award-winning global phenomenon Stranger Things, Oscar-nominated film Arrival, Netflix hit series Shadow and Bone, hit movie Free Guy, and hit Netflix movie The Adam Project.
The company is also working on the upcoming limited series All the Light We Cannot See, an adaptation of the Pulitzer Prize-winning novel by Anthony Doerr.
