Netflix brings Dr. Seuss ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ book to life in new show produced by Ellen DeGeneres

Netflix has announced its ‘Green Eggs and Ham’ show, based on the best-selling book by Dr. Seuss, with its own Seuss-like poem:

Straight from the company’s press release, the poem reads:

“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!

Cindy Holland, VP of Original Content for Netflix

threw her quote into the mix:

"We think this will be a hit

Green Eggs and Ham is a perfect fit

for our growing slate of amazing stories

available exclusively in all Netflix territories.

You can stream it on a phone.

You can stream it on your own.

You can stream it on TV.

You can stream it globally."

Ellen DeGeneres will serve as one of the executive producers along with Jared Stern, Jeff Kleeman, Mike Karz, and David Dobkin.

DeGeneres announced the exclusive new series on her talk show, telling viewers that it will roll out in 2018 and that “you can watch it with a fox, you can watch it on the rocks, you can watch it without socks”.

The ‘animated family comedy,’ as the company describes the 13-episode series, will be produced by A Very Good Production in association with Warner Bros.
