Ellen Is Bringing Green Eggs and Ham to Netflix

Green Eggs and Ham

The beloved Dr. Seuss book will be a big-budget animated series on Netflix

The bestselling Dr. Seuss children's book Green Eggs and Ham will be a 13-part animated series on Netflix. "This show is gonna combine two of my favorite things: Dr. Seuss and binge watching," Ellen announced on her show earlier this week. Although there are no current plans for Ellen DeGeneres to voice a character in her latest animated project (she's an executive producer), we can only hope that she gets to add her comic timing to the ensemble.

It will take three years to make the series, according to Deadline, with the slated to begin in May for a 2018 premiere, and it "is expected to be the highest-end, most expensive animated program ever produced for television."

Jared Stern, the Wreck-It-Ralph screenwriter who's also worked on The Lego Movie sequel, is writing the adaptation.
