If you’ve been around enough kids, there’s no doubt that you’ve read or been read Dr. Seuss’ Green Eggs and Ham. The classic children’s book is set to become a 13-episode Netflix series and is being adapted by Jared Stern (The LEGO® Movie Sequel) and produced by Ellen DeGeneres.
We’re just going to let the Netflix press release speak for this one as it wins the Internet for recent press releases:
Issued from Netflix headquarters.
Delivered straight to all reporters.
We’d love to share some happy news
based on the rhymes of Dr. Seuss.
Green Eggs and Ham will become a show
and you’re among the first to know.
In this richly animated production,
a 13-episode introduction,
standoffish inventor (Guy, by name)
and Sam-I-Am of worldwide fame,
embark on a cross-country trip
that tests the limits of their friendship.
As they learn to try new things,
they find out what adventure brings.
Of course they also get to eat
that famous green and tasty treat!
