Chris Nee’s brand-new CG animated series about an eight-year-old scientist, produced with Barack and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions, kicks off with a boom on September 28.
Exploding cakes, flying bananas and ugh… what is that smell!? In Chris Nee and Netflix’s new CG animated series Ada Twist, Scientist, eight-year-old Ada Twist loads up her lab and discovers how cool science really is! The series follows the adventures of the young, pint-sized scientist with a giant-sized curiosity, who aspires to discover the truth about absolutely everything.
With the help of her two best friends, Rosie Revere and Iggy Peck, Ada unravels and solves mysteries for her friends and family. But solving the mystery is only the beginning, because science isn’t just about learning how and why and what... it’s about putting that knowledge into action to make the world a better place.
Based on the best-selling book series by author Andrea Beaty and illustrator David Roberts, the 40 x 12 series debuts globally on September 28. The show is produced in partnership with President Barack Obama and Michelle Obama’s Higher Ground Productions (American Factory, Crip Camp, Becoming), which is dedicated to powerful storytelling that promotes greater empathy, understanding and connections between people, and lifts up new, diverse voices. Wonder Worldwide (The Christmas Chronicles) also serves as a producing partner for the show.
Ada Twist, Scientist is executive produced by Nee (Laughing Wild); Mark Burton (Wonder Worldwide); Tonia Davis and Priya Swaminathan (Higher Ground); Beaty; and Roberts. The series was developed for TV by Nee with Kerri Grant serving as showrunner and co-executive producer.
