Netflix Scores Live-Action “Richie Rich”

Netflix has scored the rights to “Richie Rich,” a live-action comedy series based on the classic cartoon character.

AwesomenessTV produced the 21-episode series which the streaming service will release in early 2015 in the United States, Canada and Latin America.

Like the comic, the series follows the world’s richest kid. Here, the kid has made a trillion-dollar fortune inventing new green technology.

He now lives in a decked-out mansion and begins a new life hanging with the rich and famous and exploring the world.

Jake Brennan, Joshua Carlon, Jenna Ortega, Lauren Taylor, Kiff VandenHeuvel and Brooke Wexler star. AwesomenessTV creator Brian Robbins and “The Suite Life Of Zack & Cody” duo Tim Pollock and Jeff Hodsden are executive producers and showrunners.
