Fast and Furious franchise producers Diesel, Neal Moritz, and Chris Morgan are executive producing the animated series, with Tim Hedrick (Voltron Legendary Defender) and Bret Haaland (All Hail King Julien) also serving as executive producers and showrunners.

The show is the first announced project in the next phase of animated shows and family programming developed for Netflix by DreamWorks Animation Television. That deal previously brought Guillermo del Toro’s Trollhunters series and the Madagascar spinoff series All Hail King Julien to the streaming video platform, as well as the Spirit: Riding Free series. DreamWorks’ animated projects have earned the studio 17 Emmy Awards and 21 nominations.

“The Fast and Furious franchise is a global phenomenon beloved by audiences of all ages, and we can’t wait to get started on the new animated series that will capture the action, heart, humor, and global appeal of the feature films,” Melissa Cobb, vice president of Kids and Family at Netflix, said in a statement.

While there is no official timetable for development on the animated series, the next movie to come out of the franchise will be spinoff film Hobbs and Shaw, which follows Dwayne Johnson and Jason Statham’s characters from the recent sequels. That film hits theaters July 26, 2019.

The ninth and 10th installments of the Fast and Furious series are scheduled to hit theaters in April 2020 and April 2021, respectively, with the 10th film expected to be the final chapter of the series.

Polish author Olga Tokarczuk and Austria’s Peter Handke have been awarded the Nobel Prize for Literature, with Kenya’s Ngugi wa Thiong’o overlooked.

Two winners were named – one for 2019 and one for 2018 – because the prize was not awarded last year.

The Swedish Academy, which oversees the prestigious award, suspended it in 2018 after a sexual assault scandal.

Tokarczuk, who also won the Man Booker International Prize last year, was awarded the 2018 Nobel Prize, with this year’s Nobel going to Handke.

Ngugi wa Thiong’o had been considered a strong candidate for the prize, but he failed

In just a few hours, we’ll be hearing Kevin Gates’ latest musical offering in its entirety. For months, we’ve been hearing about his I’m Him project and we’re about to find out exactly why Gates is that dude.

After his release from prison early last year, the Baton Rouge veteran released his Chained To The City EP before coming through with Luca Brasi 3. It’s officially album time and his fans couldn’t be any more excited. Kicking off the campaign, the Bread Winner is starting us off with the introductory song on I’m Him, dropping a video for “RBS Intro.”

The video for “RBS Intro” was filmed during Gates’ trip to Amsterdam and the track itself is hard-hitting like most of his other hits. This will be the first cut from the new album.

Kevin Gates has described this journey as a reintroduction to himself, showing off all sides of his mind and truly remaining an open book. He said: “All of those negative connotations the world puts out…I’m him. All of those positive connotations the world puts out…I’m him as well. This is the new Kevin versus the old Kevin. It’s a celebration. It’s a rebirth. It’s redemption. I’m overcoming who I used to be in order to be greater.”

Stay tuned for the new album tonight!

Quotable Lyrics:

Hold it down when I’m on lock
Calling shots from the box
Diamond teeth full of rocks
I’m a real big speaker
