Near the end of 2016 Comcast bought out DreamWorks Animation group and today Netflix and DreamWorks Animation have announced their first upcoming series based on a Universal film property – “Fast & Furious”. The series will be executive produced by Vin Diesel, Neal Moritz and Chris Morgan who also serve as producers on the live-action Fast & Furious franchise.
The synopsis for “Fast & Furious” is: Teenager Tony Toretto follows in the footsteps of his cousin Dom when he and his friends are recruited by a government agency to infiltrate an elite racing league serving as a front for a nefarious crime organization bent on world domination.
Our new home at Universal marks an exciting new chapter for storytelling at our studio, and Fast & Furious is only the beginning.
– Margie Cohn, President of DreamWorks Animation Television
