NEW YORK — The Discovery Channel says it is working with Steven Spielberg on an animated series imagining life in the future.

The network said Thursday that ‘Future Earth’ will be a miniseries showing what life might be like in 25, 50 and 100 years. Futurists and scholars will be consulted for their predictions to incorporate in the series.

The miniseries is expected to air in late 2011.

Clark Bunting, president of both the Discovery and Science channels, says he hopes to work Spielberg and his DreamWorks production companies on future projects as well.
