Julie Andrews to open Julie’s Greenroom for Netflix

Acting legend Julie Andrews is to front a new show for kids which will debut on Netflix next year.

Julie’s Greenroom will see the Sound of Music star play the head of a stage school where the children are a cast of puppets created by the actress, her daughter and the Jim Henson Company.

The show will also welcome special guests including Alec Baldwin, Carol Burnett, Josh Groban and Tituss Burgess.

Andrews says she has always wanted to make a show about all the elements of the performing arts.

“This project represents the fulfilment of a long held dream to educate children about the wonder of the arts. I am thrilled to be partnering with my daughter and long time co-author, Emma, to bring this show to life along with our co-creator, Judy Rothman-Rofė. We could not be more honoured to be working with the extraordinary Jim Henson Company. We are equally delighted to be premiering as a Netflix original production.”

Julie’s Greenroom will air worldwide on Netflix in early 2017.
