The series kicks off the network on Wednesday, June 4 in a special timeslot at 6:00 p.m. EDT and will air in its regular timeslot beginning Thursday at 9:00 p.m. EDT exclusively on Planet Green.

Menounos is ready to get up close and personal with celebrity friends behind the green curtain as she highlights green fashion trends, covers star-studded green events, and puts fans and viewers in the know as to what she and the rest of Hollywood are doing to support the green movement.
