Just after the successful release of Arrested Development on Netflix, the movie streaming site has announced its latest deal with DreamWorks.

This deal includes the release of Orange is the New Black next month, as well as "inspired" shows like Shrek and The Croods.

But they are also getting 300 hours of exclusive material from DreamWorks, like Mr. Magoo, Lassie and Casper.

They are not rolling it all out at once, however. Netflix is going to start with Turbo: F.A.S.T. as they plan to launch that into a series in December.

This comes just after the site announced it lost all Nickelodeon programming. 

DreamWorks is also announcing some changes, as they just recently signed a deal with show How To Train Your Dragon, a spinoff from the original film. The show is said to be heading to Cartoon Network.

Netflix is planning on getting more involved in social media as well.

"We plan to introduce social features for our US members in 2013, after the president signs it," they said. This would allow users to link their Netflix accounts with their Facebook accounts so they can share films with friends.
