An animated “Jurassic World” series from DreamWorks is set to premiere on Netflix next year, the company announced on Tuesday.

Titled “Jurassic World: Camp Cretaceous,” the series is the latest entry in the “Jurassic Park” franchise, running parallel to the 2015 film starring Chris Pratt and Bryce Dallas Howard.

Per Netflix, the show “follows a group of six teenagers chosen for a once-in-a-lifetime experience at a new adventure camp on the opposite side of Isla Nublar. But when dinosaurs wreak havoc across the island, the campers are stranded. Unable to reach the outside world, they’ll need to go from strangers to friends to family if they’re going to survive.”

Scott Kreamer (“Pinky Malinky”) and Lane Lueras (“Kung Fu Panda: The Paws of Destiny”) are showrunners and executive producers on the project, which will is also executive produced by Amblin Entertainment’s Steven Spielberg and Frank Marshall, and “Jurassic World” director Colin Trevorrow. Zack Stentz serves as consulting producer.

The project is the latest in DreamWorks Animation’s multi-year agreement with Netflix to produce original animated kids and family programming. Other upcoming series under the deal include “Archibald’s Next Big Thing” from executive producer Tony Hale, and a “Fast & Furious” animated series centered on the cousin of Vin Diesel’s character from the films.
