Netflix is adapting Dr. Seuss, Green Eggs and Ham it will produce

New, 12 comments

A new Netflix series has appeared, but this one is a little weird. The streaming service has a plan to adapt Green Eggs and Ham — Dr. Seuss' famous creation, made into TV animation. Thirteen episodes will make the show, the release date of which, we don't yet know. Netflix's new project is the latest of several — most recently, there was Daredevil — as the company increasingly competes, with cable TV and its repeats.

Thirteen episodes will be done, as a part of season one

The show will follow inventor Guy and friend Sam-I-Am as they travel on a voyage across the country that "tests the limits of their friendship." If the source material is anything to go by, we'll get to watch Sam-I-Am attempt to force-feed his friend spoiled food in various locations, while we learn how to work with rudimentary rhyming schemes. More plot details are yet to be revealed but — spoiler alert — Netflix says that the characters will eventually eat the eponymous Green Eggs and Ham.

With kids, Netflix has had some trouble, making shows to pierce the bubble. Most recently was Richie Rich, considered something of a glitch, but its new show should not become a mess: it's exec-produced by Ellen Degeneres.
