We were fans of the movie Turbo, so I was so excited to hear that Turbo FAST is going to premiere on Netflix, starting on December 24. This is the first kids series produced for Netflix.
Turbo FAST is a fun filled high octane ensemble comedy series teaming Turbo, fresh off his Indy 500 victory tour, with a posse of adrenaline junkie fueled snail buddies who form the Fast Action Stunt Team (FAST) to meet exciting new challenges and go on daring new adventures. Their home base is Starlight City, complete with a customized snail racetrack, but FAST also ventures to familiar Los Angeles landmarks and beyond for all kinds of outrageous, fun-filled exploits.
Each member of FAST – Turbo, Whiplash, Burn, Smoove Move, White Shadow, Skidmark and Turbo’s brother, Chet – has their own snail power and catch phrase. With their tricked-out shells and “souped up” attachments like a jet engine, fire-spitting afterburners and a killer sound system, the team attempts outrageous stunts, races on the coolest tracks, and takes on the craziest challengers, including masked Mexican lizards, surfer cockroaches, Sumo snails and a tiger beetle furious because he is no longer the fastest insect on the planet. Their link to the human world is Tito, whose Dos Bros Tacos has expanded to become Dos Bros industries and fan favorite Korean manicurist Kim-ly.
No matter how wild things get, the Fast Action Stunt Team always has each other’s backs and their need for speed delivers a whole new level of fun.
