Stephen Hawking Developing Children's Animated TV Series Variety

Scientist Stephen Hawking -- the author of the best-selling “A Brief History of Time” -- is developing a computer-animated television series based on the “George Greenby” book series he wrote with his daughter, Lucy Hawking, Variety reports.

The project comes from Nerd Corps Entertainment, which plans 26 half-hour episodes of the comedy-adventure series. It looks at science and physics through the eyes of 11-year-old George Greenby and his friend Annie Bellis, the piece adds.

“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,” Lucy and Stephen Hawking said in a statement.
