The wildly popular "I F---ing Love Science" Facebook page—which has amassed more than 10 million fans—will soon become a television show.
The new Science Channel series will be executive-produced by Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson, who made the announcement with a videotaped message at the South by Southwest festival in Austin Saturday, Deadline reports.
British biology student Elise Andrew created the page in March 2012, posting any science-related photos, articles, diagrams or comics that she found interesting. Two years later, the page is still gaining new followers every day. Andrew is on board as a consulting producer for the show.
The one-hour program, debuting later this year, will feature a mix of live-action, animation, and recreations, with appearances by celebrities and scientists. And why is Ferguson exec-producing? He explained in his statement:
If you know anything about me, you know I love science. Science has a naughty secret – it’s that all things are connected. And this show is going to explore the randomness of science. Think of it as a late night Google search that goes a hundred pages deep until things get weird – and then you just keep going. And there is no better partner for this kind of smart entertainment like Science Channel and Elise.
