Tip and Oh Return in an All-New Netflix Original Series Featuring Unforgettable New Music and Comedic Powerhouse Guest Stars
BEVERLY HILLS, CA and GLENDALE, CA – March 31, 2016 – What happens after a misfit alien named Oh conquers Earth, befriends an adventurous teen girl named Tip and together they save the day? Oh moves in with Tip and her human family and finally discovers the true meaning of home. The galaxy’s dynamic duo are back in DreamWorks Animation’s HOME: ADVENTURES WITH TIP & OH, an all-new Netflix Original Series jam-packed with outrageous laughs, tons of heart and contemporary urban pop music performed by teen singing sensation Rachel Crow (Rio 2, X Factor). Life on earth will never be the same!
Picking up where the hit 2015 animated film left off and building upon their enduring friendship, this coming-of-age buddy comedy follows fearless Tip and overenthusiastic Oh, as they navigate the crazily combined human and alien culture they live in, finding adventure everywhere they go. The series will also include tons of memorable and toe-tapping original music that highlight Rachel Crow’s extraordinary vocal talents.
The voice cast is led by the multi-talented Rachel Crow as Tip and Mark Whitten (Rolling High) as the voice of Oh, along with Ana Ortiz (Devious Maids, Ugly Betty), Ron Funches (Get Hard, Undateable), and Matt Jones (Breaking Bad, Mom). Throughout the series’ first season, recurring and guest-starring voices will feature comedy dynamos Cheri Oteri (Saturday Night Live, Liar Liar), Abby Elliot (Saturday Night Live), Jon Heder (Napoleon Dynamite, Blades of Glory), and Wayne Knight (Jurassic Park, Seinfeld). Developed by Ryan Crego (Sanjay and Craig, Shrek Forever After) and Thurop Van Orman (The Marvelous Misadventures of Flapjack), the series is executive produced by Ryan Crego.
The first season will be available exclusively to Netflix members in the U.S., Canada, Latin America, UK, Australia, New Zealand, Ireland, the Nordics, Benelux and France beginning July 29.
In addition to HOME: ADVENTURES WITH TIP & OH, Netflix will launch several new original series in partnership with DreamWorks Animation in 2016.
