NETFLIX’S GREEN EGGS AND HAM ANNOUNCES ENSEMBLE CAST FOR FALL DEBUT

– THE ELLEN DEGENERES-PRODUCED PROJECT FEATURES VOICE ACTING FROM ADAM DEVINE, MICHAEL DOUGLAS, ILANA GLAZER, DIANE KEATON, EDDIE IZZARD, TRACY MORGAN AND KEEGAN-MICHAEL KEY AMONG OTHERS. –



 

Based on the beloved book by Dr. Seuss, the upcoming animated series follows opposites “Guy” and “Sam” as they venture out on a road trip to save an endangered animal from a far off zoo. Along the way they learn to try new things like hope, friendship, and a certain delectable dish.

Long Synopsis:

The story of Green Eggs and Ham is like a postmodern Plains, Trains and Automobiles through the whimsical world of Dr. Seuss. Sam rescues the rare Chickeraffe from the Glurfsburg Zoo, hides it in a briefcase, and attempts to make his way to Meepville where he can charter a cold air balloon to take the Chickeraffe to his island home.

Guy just flopped his last big chance at being a world famous inventor for the industrial Snerz Co. He packs up his invention in a briefcase and resigns to give up on his dreams and become a paint watcher.

A chance meeting at a diner with Sam, and a switch up with the briefcases results in these two unlikely souls getting mixed up on an adventure that takes them on a journey of self discovery.

Our two mismatched heroes cross paths with overprotective Michellee, whose daughter, EB, desperately wants a pet, and falls madly in love with the Chickeraffe… despite her mother’s fears that it will eat off her face (it won’t). Michellee’s walled up heart also connects with the heart-hardened Guy. And a laborious love story begins.

Our fakakta foursome are also unknowingly pursued by a bounty hunter goat, two bad guys, and a villain who’s out to get the Chickeraffee as his ultimate trophy.
