Back in late 2018 Netflix entered into an overall deal with Chris Nee, the creator of the popular children’s show “Doc McStuffins”, to create exclusive content for Netflix. We now know that her first show will be a collaboration with Higher Ground (Barack and Michelle Obama’s production company) called “Ada Twist, Scientist”.
The series will launch in 2021 and is based on the best-selling book series by author Andrea Beaty and illustrator David Roberts. Forty 12-minute episodes have been ordered for the series which follows Ada Twist – who is described as “a young Black scientist who will explore helping people through scientific discovery, collaboration and friendship”. The series is also going to include real scientists to inspire young viewers.
