Project Mc2 premieres on Netflix this summer with two new seasons
MUMBAI:: Internet TV network Netflix has announced that two new seasons of the Daytime Emmy nominated series ‘Project Mc2’ will come to the service, showing girls around the world that ‘Smart is the new cool’.
Season two will premiere worldwide on 12 August, followed by season three, which will be available later this year.
This week, Netflix in conjunction with the White House Council on ‘Women and Girls’ and the US Department of Education is reminding all females how they can own their smarts and be super cool while doing it, just like McKeyla, Adrienne, Bryden and Camryn of Project Mc2.
At a conference focused on ‘Helping our Children Explore, Learn and Dream without Limits: Breaking Down Gender Stereotypes in Media and Toys’, Netflix announced they will partner with a leading youth organisation in the US to create interactive show screening experiences and online discovery kits encouraging young girls to unlock their Steam (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, Mathematics) potential. Details of the partnership will be announced this summer.
“The strong values of teamwork, tenacity, female empowerment and intelligence is something we want all girls including my daughters to see more of on television. We’re thrilled to bring two more seasons of Project Mc2 to our members and to show young girls around the world that Steam is both fun and accessible,” said kids content acquisition director Andy Yeatman.
Smart and successful leading women from the fields of entertainment, aeronautics and information technology will band together to bring Project Mc2 to its next level. Season two will not only introduce new missions and fun, crime-solving experiments, but girls will also meet new friends who each contribute their own experience to their super smart spy squad.
“When we set out to create the Project Mc2 franchise, our goal was to make Steam relatable and fun for girls by seamlessly integrating it into things we know they already love. As we expand the Project Mc2 universe with Season 2 and beyond, we hope to continue to increase girls’ exposure to these important disciplines and foster a confidence and receptiveness that can follow them into adulthood,” said MGA CEO Isaac Larian.
