New show is inspired by the Facebook page of the same name, which has more than 10 million likes.
Science Channel greenlit new series “I F-ing Love Science,” executive produced by CBS’ “Late Late Show” host Craig Ferguson.
Ferguson made the announcement via a videotaped message at South by Southwest in Austin, Texas on Saturday.
The series is inspired by the Facebook phenomenon, I F*cking Love Science, created by British biology student Elise Andrew, which boasts more than 10 million fans. The one-hour show will feature a mix of live-action, animation and re-creations that demonstrate the random manifestations of science that connects us. The Green Mountain West Productions and Karga7 Productions series will debut on Science Channel in fourth quarter 2014.
“If you know anything about me, you know I love science,” said Ferguson. “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.”
“When I created my Facebook page three years ago I never could have imagined that it would resonate with a worldwide audience of 11 million followers,” added Andrew. “This partnership with Craig and Science Channel is an exciting new venture that I hope will encourage more people to embrace the amazing, wonderful world of science.”
“I F-ing Love Science” is executive produced by Ferguson and Rebecca Tucker of Green Mountain West Productions. The series also is executive produced by Sarah Wetherbee of Karga7 Pictures. For Science Channel, Debbie Adler Myers and Rocky Collins are executive producers and Bernadette McDaid is vice president of production. Andrew is on board as consulting producer.
Waking up begins with saying am and now. That which has awoken then lies for a while staring up at the ceiling and down into itself until it has recognized I, and therefrom deduced I am, I am now. Here comes next, and is at least negatively reassuring; because here, this morning, is where it has expected to find itself: what’s called at home.
But now isn’t simply now. Now is a cold reminder: one whole day later than yesterday, one year later than last year. Every now is labeled with its date, rendering all past nows obsolete, until — later or sooner — perhaps — no, not perhaps — quite certainly: it will come.

This is such great, beautiful film which deserved more than one Oscar nomination that went to superb C. Firth.
Seth MacFarlane, the money and passion behind the Cosmos reboot. It is because of this guy that this show is happening the way that it’s happening, on the scale that it’s happening, with the creative control in the right hands. I am rapidly developing a serious fangirly crush on him, and have decided that I will henceforth refer to him as Captain Adorable MacMoneybags.
Watching the Q&A, I say took it on the road and bring Ann along!
