Back in 2007, a video of a one-year-old English boy biting his older brother's finger went viral. You've probably seen it. Now, the two boys, Harry and Charlie Davies-Carr, will star in their own web series based on the 56-second video.

Companies Viral Spiral and Rightster have teamed up to produce and market the series, which will apparently follow the boys, now six and eight, on their daily antics.

In the five years since it's been posted, "Charlie Bit My Finger" has been viewed almost half a billion times, making it the sixth most viewed video on YouTube. It's been reported that the Davies-Carr family made more than $500,000 from advertisements since the video's debut. It's even hatched its own blog, t-shirt and app.

There still aren't many details about what the series will entail or how many episodes we can expect. Guess we'll just have to wait and see if Charlie has indeed outgrown his teething phase.
