Green Eggs and Ham TV Series Update

Netflix gave the Television Critics Association the first preview of their Green Eggs and Ham animated series. They showed how one scene was realized from script through storyboards to rough animation and final, but did not show a full episode just yet. Series creator Jared Stern was there to talk through more of how Dr. Seuss’s short book could become 13 half hour episodes for Netflix.

Adam Devine is the voice of Sam I Am, who keeps trying to get the resistant Guy Am I (Michael Douglas) to try that emerald-shaded protein. Stern revealed how animation legends Phil Lord and Chris Miller helped him, where the series expands on Seuss, and how much of the show will rhyme. Green Eggs and Ham premieres this fall on Netflix.
