Let the Compost Fly and Drama Begin! Planet Green Debuts an All New Season of LIVING WITH ED
- Actor and environmentalist Ed Begley, Jr. and wife Rachelle are back with new adventures, new friends and a to do list that would make Al Gore proud -
SILVER SPRING, Md., July 30 -- This fall, Planet Green gives viewers what they've been asking for -- a refreshing and hilarious dose of family drama Ed and Rachelle style, with the premiere of 13 original half hour episodes of LIVING WITH ED. The new season will premiere October 21 with Ed and Rachelle taking on new challenges inside the home and out as they try to strike a balance between doing good and living well. A special sneak peak of the series premiere will be available on VOD October 14. Laura Michalchyshyn, President and General Manager, Planet Green made the announcement.
"Words can't adequately describe Ed and Rachelle's definition of a modern family unit - there's no better time to bring Planet Green viewers a new season where they can experience the Begley's off-kilter dynamic for themselves," said Michalchyshyn. "We follow the Begleys close to home and on the road for engaging and unexpected exploits that viewers will find both inspiring and amusing."
LIVING WITH ED chronicles the day-to-day, eco-friendly adventures of actor Ed Begley, Jr. and his wife Rachelle as they navigate life in Los Angeles with Ed always trying to leave the smallest possible carbon footprint in his wake. This season follows the couple as they embark on an unlikely trip to Vegas (yes, Ed in Vegas), a wedding anniversary getaway only Ed could organize and a major home renovation not to be missed. Other new features this season include an "On the Road with Ed" video diary and a host of new companion features on PlanetGreen.com including original webisodes with Ed and Rachelle, blogs and community forum events.
"Rachelle and I are elated to be doing 13 new episodes of LIVING WITH ED on Planet Green, because, frankly, we're sick of seeing the same damn re-runs ourselves," said Begley. "It'll be fun, informative, and if enough of you tune in, we can finally afford a couple of good lawyers to end this sham of a marriage. How can you say no to the only Hollywood couple with a pre-nup that involves carbon credits?"
