A Carmen Sandiego animated series is in the works at Netflix with Jane The Virgin’s Gina Rodriguez attached to voice the title character
The series will be based on the iconic educational computer game franchise that followed Sandiego as she travelled across the world stealing national treasures. It will offer an intimate look into the character’s past where viewers will not only follow her escapades but also learn who in the world is Carmen Sandiego and why she became a super thief. The series is produced by Houghton Mifflin Harcourt for Netflix and will premiere in 2019.
In addition to making trouble in countless video games since the 1980s — as well as books and her own game show — the smooth criminal also headlined Fox’s 1994-99 animated series, Where on Earth Is Carmen Sandiego?
