Late Late Show host Craig Ferguson will act as executive producer of Science Channel show

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.
