THE BOYS ARE BACK - PLANET GREEN ANNOUNCES SEASON TWO GREENLIGHT FOR THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS

-- Season Two World Premiere in Early 2011--

--THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS Marathon Event to Lead Up to Season One Finale on Wednesday, August 11, at 9:00 PM (ET) on Planet Green--

(Silver Spring, MD) - Planet Green today announced the greenlight for season two of THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS, the docu-series following urbanite couple Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell in their attempt to become "gentleman farmers." The second 10-episode season will air during the first half of 2011, with Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato's World of Wonder again producing for Planet Green. The first season of THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS originally premiered June 16, inside Planet Green's VERGE primetime block.

The initial season followed Josh, a best-selling author and advertising executive, and his partner, Brent, a physician and former vice president at Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, as they left Manhattan behind for the country life at the Beekman 1802 farm. Season two will follow them - - along with viewer favorites Farmer John and Polka Spot the llama - as they juggle their relationship, along with a burgeoning home business and a rapidly expanding working farm. From raising a barn to hosting a Sotheby's auction to transporting sheep with Martha Stewart, season two will offer complete access to Brent and Josh's second year at Beekman 1802.

"It's official - Polka Spot's 15 minutes of fame will continue in 2011," said Laura Michalchyshyn, President and General Manager of Planet Green. "Brent and Josh both possess huge, endearing personalities that America is falling in love with. THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS has quickly established itself as a cornerstone franchise for Planet Green and our VERGE block - we can't wait for season two."

Viewers who missed parts of season one - or those eager for an encore - will have an opportunity to catch up on Wednesday, August 11. Planet Green will air episodes one through nine in order, beginning at 12:00 PM (ET) and then again at 4:30 PM (ET). This all leads up to the world premiere of THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS season finale at 9:00 PM (ET).

THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS is executive produced by Planet Green's SVP of Production & Development Jeff Hasler and Executive Producer Lynn Sadofsky. Executive producers from World of Wonder are Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell. Angela Rae Berg is co-executive producer.
