NEW YORK — Actor Morgan Freeman is teaming with the Science Channel to make a series on space exploration that is expected to air on the cable network early next year.

Titled “Through the Wormhole,” the series will look into such topics as the possibility of life beyond Earth, future expeditions to Mars and problems caused by the sun.

Freeman’s an astronomy enthusiast who unsuccessfully tried a space-oriented Web site several years ago. He said the topic has fascinated him since he was young.

“I got to the point where I was reading all of the science fiction writers about space, some very interesting books,” said Freeman, in an interview from South Africa, where he’s working on a movie with Matt Damon about Nelson Mandela.

Freeman will narrate the series. The Science Channel is making the episodes with Revelations Entertainment, Freeman’s production company.
