New Jimmy DiResta Maker Show Coming to Netflix in March
Today, it was finally officially announced that a new Netflix maker show, called Making Fun, will premier on March 4th.
Starring Jimmy DiResta, John Graziano, Paul Jackman, Derek Forestier, and Pat Lab, the show will challenge these master makers to create crazy contraptions suggested by a pool of ideators. Who are these design geniuses? Children.
Each week, kids will pitch their ideas to Jimmy and the team. They’ll pick one suggestion and attempt to build it. Dinosaur Taco Toilet? No problem. Racing unicorns? OK. A giant sneaker car? Why not?
