This weekend, Netflix is holding a huge Comic Con-like virtual extravaganza called TUDUM that will be like no other event the streamer has ever produced. It will be a virtual celebration of all things Netflix — with a slew of news and fresh content for fans from across the world to enjoy. We’re talking exclusive new trailers, clips, and announcements that span more than 100 series, films, and specials, all coming soon to Netflix.
Hosting this sprawling look at all of your favorite content from the streamer will be more than 145 Netflix stars, for what will be the first-ever “TUDUM: A Netflix Global Fan Event.” The event is set to kick off Saturday at 9:00 am PST and broadcast across Netflix’s YouTube channels globally, in addition to the streamer’s presence on Twitter, Twitch, and Facebook. We teased a bit about the event already here, but first things first — what the heck is up with that name, right?
