NETFLIX ANNOUNCES THE WORLDWIDE DEBUT OF "JULIE'S GREENROOM," A NEW PRESCHOOL SERIES FROM THE JIM HENSON COMPANY CELEBRATING THE PERFORMING ARTS, STARRING AND CO-CREATED BY THE LEGENDARY JULIE ANDREWS

GUEST STARS TO INCLUDE ALEC BALDWIN, SARA BAREILLES, TITUSS BURGESS, CAROL BURNETT, CHRIS COLFER, JOSH GROBAN, ELLIE KEMPER, AND IDINA MENZEL, AMONG OTHERS

Beverly Hills, Calif., June 2, 2016 - Netflix, the world's leading Internet TV network, announced today that award-winning actress Julie Andrews will star in Julie's Greenroom, a new preschool show from The Jim Henson Company that features an all-new puppet cast of kids learning about the performing arts. The series will be available exclusively to Netflix members globally in early 2017.

Andrews, who created the series with her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton and Judy Rothman-Rofe, will executive produce and star as Ms. Julie - the director of the Wellspring Center for the Performing Arts in which she teaches performing arts workshops in the theatre and its "Greenroom."

Ms. Julie and her devoted assistant Gus (Giullian Yao Gioiello) bring the performing arts to a new generation of kids known as the "Greenies," played by original puppet characters built by the renowned Jim Henson's Creature Shop. The Greenies are a diverse group of kids who are mesmerized by all that the arts and creativity has to offer. Over the course of the season, with Ms. Julie's guidance and inspiration from the visiting guest artists, the kids create an entirely original new show, that is a mashup of all the performing arts including mime, music, dance, improv, circus arts, voice and more.

Most episodes will feature an original song and every episode will feature a guest star who engages the kids in a specific area of the performing arts. The incredible array of confirmed guest stars will include Alec Baldwin, Sara Bareilles, Joshua Bell, Tituss Burgess, Carol Burnett, Chris Colfer, Robert Fairchild, Josh Groban, David Hyde Pierce, Bill Erwin, Ellie Kemper, Idina Menzel, Tiler Peck, and Stomp.

Ms. Andrews commented that "this project represents the fulfilment of a long held dream to educate children about the wonder of the arts. I am thrilled to be partnering with my daughter and long time coauthor, Emma, to bring this show to life along with our co-creator, Judy Rothman-Rofe. We could not be more honored to be working with the extraordinary Jim Henson Company. We are equally delighted to be premiering as a Netflix original production."

"It's been such an incredible treat to work with Julie on this project," said Andy Yeatman, Director of Global Kids Content at Netflix. "This show is all about awakening children's interest in the performing arts while introducing a new era of puppets to the viewers."

"The best of the best have joined together to bring Julie's Greenroom to Netflix," said Lisa Henson, CEO of The Jim Henson Company. "Our award-winning director, Tony-nominated puppeteers, Broadway composer, and accomplished guest artists, led by the incomparable Julie Andrews, together will inspire kids to explore, appreciate and celebrate all forms of performing arts."

Julie's Greenroom began shooting this May in Long Island, New York. The thirteen 30-minute episodes will premiere globally on Netflix in early 2017. Julie's Greenroom is a Netflix Original produced by The Jim Henson Company and is executive produced by Julie Andrews, Emma Walton Hamilton and Steve Sauer, and Lisa Henson and Halle Stanford for the The Jim Henson Company. Emmy Award(R) winning actor and writer Joey Mazzarino is co-producer and director, Tom Keniston is producer, and Emmy Award(R) winner Bill Sherman joins the series as composer.
