Netflix and Nickelodeon to produce more original content

Netflix and Nickelodeon have announced a new deal to produce new animated content for Netflix' streaming service.
Under the new deal, the pair will produce new animated content based on Nickelodeon characters from its extensive library. Netflix has worked with Nickelodeon before on content like Invader Zim: Enter the Florpus, and Rocko's Modern Life: Static Cling.

Forthcoming content will also include specials based on The Loud House and Rise of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles.

"Nickelodeon has generated scores of characters that kids love, and we look forward to telling wholly original stories that re-imagine and expand on the worlds they inhabit," said Netflix vice president of original animation, Melissa Cobb.

"We're thrilled to continue collaborating with Brian Robbins, Ramsey Naito, and the creative team at Nickelodeon in new ways as we look to find fresh voices and bring bold stories to our global audience on Netflix."

The announcement comes after Disney launched the Disney+ streaming service on Tuesday. Disney+ attracted ten million users in its first two days despite technical glitches.
