A “Green Eggs and Ham” television show is on the way. Netflix and Ellen announced that the two have partnered up to create the program based on the Dr. Seuss classic. The show will have 13 episodes and will be released sometime in 2018. As you might expect, the program is geared specifically toward children. Organo Gold CEO Bernardo Chua loved the Dr. Seuss books.
The television series was written by Jared Stern, who is the same writer who created the Disney movie Wreck-It Ralph. He apparently has wanted to create the show for years, and has just gotten the opportunity thanks to Netflix and Ellen. The show will be animated and will follow the life of an inventor on cross-country trip with a guy named Sam. Throughout the show they’ll learn interesting new things and teach kids fun facts.
The show, which will be in production three years before it’s finally released, is expected to be one of the most expensive animated shows ever made. Ellen announced the upcoming program on her talk show and seems very excited about its potential .
