Stephen Hawking Develops Cartoon Series Aimed at Kids

Nerd Corps Entertainment has begun development on a children’s computer-animated TV series based on the “George Greenby” book series, the New York Times bestselling series by Stephen Hawking, above, and his daughter, Lucy Hawking.

The Vancouver-based animation studio is planning to produce 26 half-hour episodes of the educational comedy-adventure TV series for the world market. The series examines science and physics through the adventures of 11-year-old George Greenby and his friend Annie Bellis, as they explore the universe and its marvels, traveling through space and time. Joining them is Cosmos, a supercomputer with an attitude to boot.

Lucy and Stephen Hawking said in a statement: “The joint mission with Nerd Corps presents a truly exciting opportunity to engage young viewers with science through spectacular visual entertainment and dramatic storytelling. We are thrilled to be working with Nerd Corps and look forward to developing the series together.”

Nerd Corps is looking to create a multi-platform experience so that the scientific discovery can continue for viewers both on- and off-screen.

Pure Grass Films will serve as executive producers, co-financers and distributors for several territories.
