New Kids Turbo
A black comedy film based on the television series New Kids, originally developed at HALAL. The first series was released online and became a huge underground success. Comedy Central recognised the potential and bought the series, which resulted in HALAL making a second series for them. Original makers Steffen Haars and Flip van der Kuil came, saw and decided to blow it all up even bigger by releasing feature film New Kids Turbo.
New Kids Turbo premiered in 2010 and was released in all Dutch cinemas, breaking the Dutch record for receiving the highest audience figures on the opening evening. It was Comedy Central’s first film to be produced outside the United States and also Paramount Pictures’ first film to be produced by Comedy Central in the Netherlands.
