DHX to Bring Steven Hawking Books to TV

TVO, the technological extension of Ontario, Canada's public education system, has partnered with DHX Media to develop a children's animated series based on the

George Greenby

books by world-renowned theoretical physicist Stephen Hawking and his daughter, author Lucy Hawking.

The new series is geared toward school-aged kids and explores various aspects of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) including space exploration and physics.

The project was first initiated at Nerd Corps Entertainment, which was acquired by DHX in December.

DHX Media will produce the series, with Pure Grass Films serving as executive producers, co-financers and distributors for several territories outside of Canada.

The series follows 11-year-olds George Greenby and Annie Bellis, whose tutor Cosmos is an artificial intelligence app that can transport them anywhere in the universe.

"DHX Media is very excited to be starting development on this amazing science show with TVO, an industry leader in kids'

educational media," says Ace Fipke, chief content officer, kids and family, DHX Media. "This partnership allows us to turn George and Annie's story into a visually spectacular educational adventure for the small screen, introducing school-aged boys and girls to the science of the universe through imaginative adventures."
