Planet Green, a new network from the folks at the Discovery Channel, is coming to a television near you!
The suits promise a ton of fun, “eco-tainment” – no finger wagging at us couch potatoes who forget to recycle! The network will host an explosion of new shows and programming, including a series with Access Hollywood’s Maria Menounos, and shows with Emeril Lagasse and Tom Green. Looking for a boring documentary on the plight of the barn owl? Look somewhere else.
Battleground Earth, one of their flagship shows, features Ludacris and Tommy Lee in a series of challenges and competitions. Their mission? To tour the country and perform – without hurting Mother Earth. The ten episodes of this show will culminate in an eco-friendly concert.
Mean Green Machines promises to be action packed, as regular vehicles are pitted against their green, eco-friendly counterparts. A champion will be crowned each week, and look for adrenaline pumping races featuring snowmobiles and Killacycles!
Planet Green will replace the Discovery Home channel, and be broadcast to 50 million homes. The network premieres Wednesday, June 4.
