Greta Thunberg Gets TV Series From BBC Studios

17-year-old Swedish environmental activist Greta Thunberg is getting a series from BBC Studios’ Science Unit. Viewers will follow her global journey across the globe to map out the scientific evidence behind climate change, meet with leading scientists, and challenge just about everyone, including political leaders and business tycoons, to change.

A name and official network for the series have yet to be announced. However, the series will also highlight Thunberg’s journey into adulthood. Thunberg appeared briefly via video presentation during the Academy Awards ceremony on Sunday night. In a tribute to the power of documentaries, a clip was shown of Thunberg’s conversation with filmmaker David Attenborough, whose work she credits as informing her about the climate-change crisis.
