Where in the world is Carmen Sandiego? Apparently, the answer is about to be “Netflix,” and she’s bringing Gina Rodriguez along with her.
Rodriguez, who won a Golden Globe for her work on Jane the Virgin, will provide the voice of the iconic sticky-fingered filcher for a new animated series on Netflix.
People of a certain age will surely remember Where in the World is Carmen Sandiego?, a geography-based game wherein you followed clues to capture Sandiego or one of her cronies as they attempted to do things like steal the Eiffel Tower. This was turned into a game show hosted by Greg Lee that also featured Lynne Thigpen as The Chief and the musical styling of Rockapella.
Now, the red-hat-wearing criminal will be voiced by Rodriguez in this new venture. Fingers crossed Rockapella will show up as well.
Chris Morgan is the author of The Comic Galaxy of Mystery Science Theater 3000 and the new novel The Ash Heap of History. Wisely or not, he’s also on Twitter.
