BEVERLY HILLS , Calif., Aug. 31 (UPI) -- A new talk show called Bill Nye Saves the World is scheduled to debut on Netflix in the spring.
Nye was the creator and star of the Emmy Award-winning television show Bill Nye the Science Guy, which ran for five seasons. He also was a recent contestant on Dancing with the Stars.
"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," Nye said in a statement Wednesday. "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."
His next small-screen project will see the scientist, comedian and author interviewing special guests, as well as conducting experiments.
