I Fucking Love Science Is Coming To Televison!

March 9, 2014 | by Elise Andrew

I am insanely excited to announce that "I Fucking Love Science" will be coming to television! The Facebook page and blog will be evolving into a TV show on the Science Channel, produced by one of my favorite presenters of all time: Craig Ferguson!

The show was announced last night at our event at SXSW in Austin, Texas. 

As Craig said in his announcement: 

“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.”

I'm on board as a consulting producer, and will be contributing to the editorial "voice" of the show to ensure it remains true to my vision. The show will be 60 minutes and we're hoping it will air in the third quarter of this year.

In just two short years, we've amassed a following of ten million people. Via social media alone, we reach FIFTY MILLION PEOPLE A WEEK. With this new venture, we'll be able to reach millions of new people and show them exactly why science is so damn exciting.

To answer the one question I've been asked repeatedly since last night: no, I will not be hosting. As much as I appreciate the support, I'm just not an "in front of the camera" person. I'll be behind the scenes happily producing.

I hope you're all as excited as I am!
