Netflix will launch a science-based talk show next year hosted by Bill Nye, a household name as “the science guy” since his 1990s TV show.
On “Bill Nye Saves the World,” Nye will bring in special guests and conduct experiments and demonstrations as each episode tackles a topic from a scientific point of view. Nye said in a release that the program would discuss subjects like vaccinations, genetically modified foods and climate change.
“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,” said Bill Nye. “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.”
The show is set to launch in the the first half of 2017.
