Netflix will eat green eggs and ham, it will eat them, Sam-I-Am!
The streaming service has ordered an animated adaptation of the classic Dr. Seuss series, which comes from Ellen DeGeneres’ A Very Good Production, among others.
Netflix made the announcement Wednesday in a whimsical press release mimicking the famous
“We’d love to share some happy news
based on the rhymes of
Green Eggs and Ham will become a show
and you’re among the first to know.”
The series will revolve around standoffish inventor Guy and Sam-I-Am, who embark on a cross-country trip full of adventure, learning and tests of their friendship.
In addition to A Very Good Production, A Stern Talking To and Gulfstream Television are producing in association with Warner Bros Animation. Warner Bros. Television is distributing.
Netflix vice president of original content Cindy Holland said of the upcoming series, “”We think this will be a hit, ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ is a perfect fit, for our growing slate of amazing stories, available exclusively in all Netflix territories.”
