Music and comedic powerhouse guest stars join a voice cast led by teen singing sensation Rachel Crow as Tip and Mark Whitten as the voice of Oh.
BEVERLY HILLS, CA & GLENDALE, CA – Netflix has announced the July 29th debut of a Netflix Original Series, DreamWork’s Home Adventures with Tip & Oh, packed with outrageous laughs, tons of heart and contemporary urban pop music performed by teen singing sensation Rachel Crow. 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.
Picking up where the hit 2015 animated film left off and building upon their enduring friendship, this coming-of-age buddy comedy follows 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 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 DreamWorks Animation’s Home Adventures with Tip & Oh, Netflix will launch several new original series in partnership with DreamWorks Animation in 2016. Along with a reimagining of pop culture phenomenon Voltron, also comes Trollhunters from master storyteller Guillermo del Toro, who will unleash a new, fantastical world centered on two best friends and the startling discovery made beneath their hometown.
