Netflix recently secured the rights to the classic Dr. Seuss’s timeless tale and is turning it into a 13-part animated series featuring an all-star cast. The show, which is being executive produced by Ellen DeGeneres, will debut this fall.
Green Eggs and Ham will star Adam Devine as Sam I Am, the character who so persistently pushed the titular meal in the book. He’ll be joined by Michael Douglas, who will play his polar opposite Guy I Am. The two characters will set out on a road trip and cross paths with a wild cast of characters along the way, all voiced by celebrities. Diane Keaton, Ilana Glazer, Eddie Izzard, Jeffrey Wright, Jillian Bell, John Turturro, Tracy Morgan, Daveed Diggs, Keegan-Michael Key will make appearances.
According to Netflix, Green Eggs and Ham won’t just be a retelling of the book. Instead, it will tell a new story in the world of Seuss.
