Facebook phenom 'I F-ing Love Science' gets TV show
Is this the best new TV series title of 2014?
Science Channel has greenlit a new show titled I F—ing Love Science executive produced by CBS late-night star Craig Ferguson.
The series is inspired by the popular Facebook page “I F—ing Love Science,” created by British biology student Elise Andrew. The page has gathered nearly 5 million followers by posting photos, cartoons, and news related to science. The cable channel announced the show at its South by Southwest Interactive festival party in Austin on Saturday night.
“If you know anything about me, you know I love science,” Ferguson said in a statement. “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.”
More official show detail: “I F—ing Love Science follows one inalienable truth — that jaw-dropping, mind-blowing, science is present in everything. In each 60 minute episode, the show attempts to prove a grand, outlandish thesis that will take the viewer on twists and turns through the big and small of all things science. Each hour will delve into a bevy of unexpected but related topics, meeting celebrities, scientists, and everyday people – each of whom f-ing love science.” The series will debut in the fourth quarter of this year.
