Bill Nye Recruits Tyler, The Creator for New Netflix Talk Show Theme
Bill Nye could definitely use some help saving the world with his new Netflix talk series, and who better than the Creator himself? Tyler, The Creator, that is, performing a revamped theme song for the “Science Guy”s new series, Bill Nye Saves the World.
Ahead of its April 21 premiere, Bill Nye Saves the World shared a brief hangout session with Nye and Tyler, The Creator, who recalls watching the original Bill Nye series on Saturday mornings. You can get a sample of the new theme in the video below, and watch the original beneath it:
The series will “tackle a topic from a scientific point of view, dispelling myths, and refuting anti-scientific claims that may be espoused by politicians, religious leaders or titans of industry … In Bill’s unfiltered style, he will bring in special guests, conduct experiments and demonstrations, and ultimately let the facts lead the argument.”
Nye’s crew of correspondents include MIT-trained engineer Emily Calandrelli, comedians Joanna Hausmann and Nazeem Hussain, model Karlie Kloss, science communicator and Veritasium creator Derek Muller. Guests include Scrubs stars Zach Braff and Donald Faison (not necessarily together), Crazy Ex-Girlfriend star Rachel Bloom, Diamond Stone, Tim Gunn, Wil Wheaton, Joel McHale, Steve Aoki and more.
You can check out the first trailer for Bill Nye Saves the World below, and stay tuned for the April 21 premiere.
