Calandrelli posted on Instagram. “For many years I pitched science shows to large science networks and was unsuccessful. I would receive the feedback that ’the majority of our audience is male, so we just don’t know if they’d relate to a female host'”.

She continued, “But last year, Netflix picked up our science show, Emily’s Wonder Lab. I filmed the entire thing 9 months pregnant. So there is now a female-led science show on the biggest streaming platform in the world hosted by a pregnant woman – available world wide.”

The series is executive produced and hosted by Calandrelli.
