Gina Rodriguez to voice Carmen Sandiego on new animated series

Where in the world is Gina Rodriguez?

Carmen Sandiego won't be the Jane the Virgin actress' first foray into voice acting. This good girl is ready to go bad, though. In 2011, there were talks of making a live-action Carmen Sandiego film with Jennifer Lopez in the lead role. Apparently, the answer is about to be "Netflix", and she's bringing Gina Rodriguez along with her. For dorks of a certain age, Carmen Sandiego has a special place in our hearts teaching us geography on the library computer and fox exposing us to feelings of hubris and humiliation on the game show.

According to The Tracking Board, the streaming giant has ordered a 20-episode animated series which is targeted to be "as educational as it is entertaining, given the title character's globetrotting adventures", reported Ace Showbiz.

There is no word yet on when Where in the World Is Carmen Sandiego? will be hitting our screens, but knowing Netflix, we're sure it won't be long.

Believe it or not, after more than two decades Sandiego, a notorious crook, is still on the loose. This time, she will be putting her sticky fingers to use on Netflix.
