NETFLIX CONTINUES TO EXPAND ITS AWARD-WINNING KIDS ORIGINAL SERIES FOR MEMBERS WORLDWIDE

Beverly Hills, Calif., January 28, 2016 - Continuing its investment in original content for kids of all ages, Netflix Inc. (NASDAQ: NFLX), the world's leading Internet TV network, is adding three new original series to its lineup. Suspenseful drama The Greenhouse expands the live action category for tweens that currently includes Degrassi: Next Class, Lost & Found Music Studios and Project Mc�. The iconic Hasbro brand Stretch Armstrong will make its television debut with an all-new look in an animated series. A musical update to the new Lalaloopsy series joins a growing portfolio of shows created to engage and pique the curiosity of young kids. All episodes from each new series will launch on Netflix at the same time around the world.

"With roughly half of our 75 million members regularly watching kids content, we're happy to expand our original slate with these three great series," said Andy Yeatman, Director of Global Kids Content for Netflix. "We know kids love Netflix and that's in part because they never really outgrow us. We program and recommend new TV shows and movies from preschool through their teen years and into adulthood."

Details on each show are below:

THE GREENHOUSE - 2017

The Greenhouse is a live action series set in an elite boarding school in Southern California called "The Greenhouse."
