eOne and POP Family’s animated series ‘Alien TV’ to launch on Netflix and Nine Network in Australia

Netflix will premiere eOne and POP Family Entertainment’s hilarious animated series, Alien TV, globally this summer. The series will also air on Australia’s free to air channel, Nine Network in this month. The Nine Network commissioned the series in Australia, produced with financial support of Create NSW. Alien TV will launch with 26, half hour episodes targeted at kids aged six to 11 years and their families. The series follows the slapstick misadventures of an extra-terrestrial television news crew as they try to understand the wild, baffling and sometimes ‘just-plain-weird’ life on a newly discovered planet called – Earth. POP Family Entertainment CEO and Alien TV Producer Carmel Travers said, “Alien TV is a great example of what international co-productions are all about. 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.”  Combining real world imagery with high-end CGI animation, the Alien TV news crew lands on Earth to unravel the mysteries of this strange new world and report back to their curious alien audience. Their attempts at understanding human behaviour descend into chaos as they misinterpret everything they see – with unexpected and hilarious consequences.  “Our new show, Alien TV, takes recognisable situations and transforms them into side-splittingly hilarious visual gags that have an instant and universal appeal for both kids and parents,”. “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,added eOne Family Brands president Olivier Dumont.
