As the topic of girls becoming more immersed in STEM-related media gains more relevance, Genius Brands International has announced the production of a new female-led science-themed animated series, Thomas Edison’s Secret Lab.

The series, which is being produced in collaboration with Georgia Public Broadcasting and the Edison Innovation Foundation, is designed to illustrate that invention can foster creativity and imagination. It follows Angie, a 12-year-old prodigy and her young science club who discover a secret lab equipped with everything they could imagine. In each of the 52 11-minute episodes, Thomas Edison comes to life in the form of a hologram.

SpongeBob scribe Steve Banks wrote the Edison pilot entitled “If the Fossil Fits.”

An interactive website, digital apps, toys, games, electronics, in-school curriculum and more are all currently in development.

International distribution of the series outside of the US and Canada is being handled by PGS Entertainment.
