It's quite possible that there has never been a better time to be a geek. Comic book characters are popular culture stalwarts, games like World of Warcraft are getting the big screen treatment, and now even a Facebook page, I F-ing Love Science, is becoming a TV show.

It’s quite possible that there has never been a better time to be a geek. Comic book characters are popular culture stalwarts, games like World of Warcraft are getting the big screen treatment, and now even a Facebook page, I F-ing Love Science, is becoming a TV show.

When Elise Andrew, a British biology student, started the I F-ing Love Science page on Facebook three years ago, she likely didn’t expect it to become the phenomenon it is today. With almost 11 million followers who aren’t shy about sharing posts from the page, chances are good that you’ve seen something from Ms. Andrew on your news feed.

With a public seemingly chomping at the bit to consume any and all science based entertainment, as evidenced by the roaring success of the COSMOS: A Spacetime Odyssey premiere, Science Channel has announced that they are developing a show based on the popular Facebook page. Produced by Karga7 Productions and Green Mountain West, the show is described as “featuring a blend of live-action, animation, and re-creations showcasing the random connectivity of science with appearances by celebrities and scientists.”

The executive producer of this daring (let’s not forget how $#*! My Dad Says, a show based on a twitter account, fared) endeavor? None other than the geeky late night host of The Late Late Show, Craig Ferguson. It was Ferguson himself that announced the news via taped message at the Science Channel’s SXSW event.

So what do you think? Will you tune in to I F-ing Love Science? Fan of this new wave of science based entertainment? Let us know down in the comments below or, as always, on the GEEK Facebook page!
