If you’ve been asking yourself where in the world is Carmen Sandiego, the answer soon will be Netflix. The streaming service has set a new animated series with Jane the Virgin‘s Gina Rodriguez voicing the title character for 2019.
Produced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt, the 20-episode Carmen Sandiego features not only a new crop of international capers packed but will looks into Carmen’s past to tell who she is and why she became a super thief. Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things) will voice Player, Carmen’s chief accomplice and friend.
The character debuted in a 1980s computer game franchise Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? and probably is best known for the Greg Lee-hosted game show that aired on PBS from 1991-95.
Duane Capizzi (The Batman) is co-executive producer and showrunner of the upcoming Netflix series, with CJ Kettler (The Tick) as executive producer and Caroline Fraser as the executive in charge of production. Rodriguez is repped by APA, Primary Wave and Jackoway Tyerman.
