Broadway and film star Julie Andrews is taking her interest in performing arts into a new medium, starring in Julie's Greenroom, a new Netflix series for pre-schoolers, according to a report on Deadline.

The series will roll out 13 half-hour episodes sometime in early 2017.

Julie's Greenroom, which Andrews created with her daughter Emma Walton Hamilton and Judy Rothman-Rofe, is being produced by the Jim Henson Company and will feature Andrews and her human assistant Gus (Giullian Yao Gioiello), along with a gang of “Greenies” —kid puppets built by Henson’s Creature Shop.

According to the description, “Over the course of the season, the kids create an entirely original new show, that is a mashup of all the performing arts including mime, music, dance, improv, circus arts, voice and more.”

Andrews starred on Broadway in My Fair Lady, Camelot, The Boy Friend and Victor/Victoria and in the film musicals Mary Poppins and The Sound of Music.
