In recent years, “Bill Nye the Science Guy” has enjoyed a resurgence of sorts; from new shows and social media acclaim to working with Tyler, The Creator, his brand and name make for some pretty hot real estate right now. Continuing his pursuit of educating the masses, Bill Nye is now taking part in a new documentary about his career and life.
Titled Bill Nye: Science Guy, the new PBS Distribution documentary follows its subject’s journey from his days at Cornell to his contemporary crusade against climate change. Along with Nye himself, other well-respected figures and educators like Neil deGrasse Tyson are also enlisted to give their thoughts on science and more. Most notably, the film focuses on Nye’s current campaign.
“Nowadays, I’m talking to adults and I’m not mincing words,” the 61-year-old pop culture personality shares. “Climate is changing, it’s our fault, we gotta get to work on this.” As he reveals in the trailer, Nye is focusing on talking to the experts and getting the evidence out to his audience. “If we raise a generation of kids that can’t think critically, we are headed for trouble.”
You can check out the trailer for Bill Nye: Science Guy above, while the film itself will debut at New York City’s Landmark Sunshine theater on Friday, October 27.
