Richie Rich Live Action TV Series ordered by Netflix

Netflix has ordered 21 episodes of a live-action half-hour comedy based on Richie Rich, according to The Wrap. It will star Jake Brennan (Dark Skies) as the richest kid in the world.

The series—an adaptation of the 1980s cartoon, which itself was based on a 1950s comic—will chronicle Richie’s adventures with his friends after he makes a trillion dollars by inventing a new green technology and subsequently moves into a mansion.

Rich debuted in the comic book Little Dot #1, cover-dated September 1953, and was created by Alfred Harvey and Warren Kremer. Dubbed “the poor little rich boy,” Richie is the only child of fantastically wealthy parents and is the world’s richest kid.

During Harvey Comics’ heyday (1950–1982), Richie was the publisher’s most popular character, eventually starring in over fifty separate titles, including such long-running comics as Richie Rich, Richie Rich Millions, Richie Rich Dollars and Cents, and Richie Rich Success Stories.

Richie Rich was most recently re-imagined in 1994, as a movie that starred McCauley Culkin.

The Netflix series is being produced by AwesomenessTV, with a target debut date of early 2015. Tim Pollock and Jeff Hodsden (The Suite Life of Zack and Cody) will serve as showrunners.
