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 neighbours living in the same town. It 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 were created as stickers on Line mobile messengers, and now we’re excited to develop the expanded world to delight new audiences everywhere on Netflix.”
“Line Friends has produced diversified content with its popular IPs, including videos, animations and games that millennials and Gen Z love,” said Line Friends vice president KD Kim. “Through this new animated series on Netflix, we will enhance our competitiveness in global content, and strengthen our presence in the entertainment industry, as well as our 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. Further details about the new series will be announced at a later date.
