Nickelodeon and Netflix are joining forces to bring fans more "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" and "The Loud House."
Thanks to a new deal, Viacom's Nickelodeon Studios will produce two new animated movies for Netflix, each based on one of the two series, Deadline reports. The shows currently air on Nickelodeon; "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" is based on the beloved superhero team and is in its first season, while "The Loud House" premiered in May 2016.
The movies will center on the characters featured in the animated series. "Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" follows Raph, Leo, Donnie, Mickey, and April O'Neil on their adventures in New York City. "The Loud House," on the other hand, is about middle-child Lincoln Loud, who is the only son in a family of 11 kids.
The deal comes as Viacom looks to produce more content for third-party platforms. The company's CEO, Bob Bakish, called it "both incremental business and powerful promotion for these two franchises," according to The Hollywood Reporter. Previous deals between Viacom and Netflix brought "Pinky Malinky" to the streamer and will soon bring "Avatar: The Last Airbender."
No release dates have been revealed for the upcoming movies.
