AwesomenessTV's live-action re-imagining of the classic cartoon character Richie Rich will start streaming on Netflix early next year.
Starring Jake Brennan, Joshua Carlon, Jenna Ortega, Lauren Taylor, Kiff VandenHeuvel and Brooke Wexler, the half-hour series is about the richest kid in the world.
"After making a trillion dollars by inventing and selling a cool new green technology, Richie moves into a decked-out mansion and instantly starts living the most awesome life ever," a synopsis said. "The 21-episode series follows his adventures, from exploring Antarctica, making a movie with his friends and meeting famous celebrities. There's never a dull moment in Richie's new life."
