Bill Nye, best known as the star of the educational program “Bill Nye the Science Guy,” has a new show. The AP reports that Netflix will launch a new series, “Bill Nye Saves the World.”
“Each episode will tackle a chosen topic from a scientific point of view in an effort to dispel myths and refute anti-scientific claims that may be muddling the issue,” the story reports. “Topics will include vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change.”
The new show will launch in the spring. In the announcement, Nye said: “We’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And perhaps we’ll change the world a little.”
The scientist and author starred in “Bill Nye the Science Guy” for five seasons on PBS during the 1990s, with the half-hour show also syndicated to local stations.
