Bill Nye the Science Guy is getting his own documentary. The film will be directed by Seth Gordon, David Alvarado and Jason Sussberg.

The team has launched a Kickstarter to raise $650,000 to fund the project. Some donations incentives include sneak peeks, Nye's handwritten notes, and for $10,000, an associate producer credit.

As the CEO of the Planetary Society, Nye is working to launch a solar-powered satellite into space.

Director Seth Gordon has worked on documentaries such as "Freakonomics," "Horrible Bosses," and "Identity Thief."
