Netflix announced Wednesday that it will premiere a new animated children's series this summer, featuring superstar covers of some of the most well-known Beatles songs.

Beat Bugs was created by Josh Wakely, who will direct, write and produce the series following a deal with Sony/ATV Music Publishing for worldwide rights to record covers of the John Lennon/Paul McCartney "Northern Songs" catalogue, featuring some of the most well-known Beatles songs.

The series will incorporate songs from the Fab Four to tell uplifting and life-affirming stories. The tracks, woven into the narrative of each episode, will be covered by Sia, Eddie Vedder, P!nk, James Bay, The Shins, Of Monsters and Men, Chris Cornell, Regina Spektor, James Corden and Birdy with additional artists joining the project set to be announced.
