Netflix Announces Talk Show With Bill Nye The Science Guy
Netflix and Bill Nye The Science Guy are teaming up for a "talk show." Bill Nye Saves The World will tackle science and its impact on politics, culture, and society in general. Variety reports the show is slated to begin in Spring of 2017. Nye issued the following statement:
“Since the start of the ‘Science Guy’ show, I’ve been on a mission to change the world by getting people everywhere excited about the fundamental ideas in science. Today, I’m excited to be working with Netflix on a new show, where we’ll discuss the complex scientific issues facing us today, with episodes on vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change. With the right science and good writing, we’ll do our best to enlighten and entertain our audience. And, perhaps we’ll change the world a little."
I'm sure if nothing else, Nye will definitely make waves when his show premieres! Whether that's a good or bad thing, we will find out. Sounds like Netflix is trying to make their own Last Week Tonight and I don't know if Nye has the comedic chops of John Oliver!
