From a media release:
Thunderbird is pleased to announce an agreement with Netflix, which will see all episodes of its hit comedy Some Assembly Required exclusively available in all Netflix territories outside of Canada, where the show was commissioned as an original production for YTV and is currently #1 on the network.
Some Assembly Required is shot in front of a live-studio audience in Burnaby, BC and centres on an eclectic group of teenagers who run a toy company. As the new owner of Knickknack Toys, fourteen-year-old Jarvis Raines hires a group of friends from school to help him create awesome new toys. Following the teens’ comedic day-to-day adventures, this live-action series created by Dan Signer (A.N.T. Farm, Mr. Young) and Howard Nemetz (Mr. Young, The Suite Life of Zack & Cody), stars Young Artist Awards nominee, Kolton Stewart, and 2015 Canadian Screen Awards nominee, Charlie Storwick.
Some Assembly Required is slated to start streaming on Netflix this summer.
