A Second Season of THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS Is Ready to Bloom This March on Planet Green

- Premiering March 22, THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS Season Two Follows TV's Favorite Farmers as They Attempt to Keep the Farm - and Their Relationship - Alive -

SILVER SPRING, Md., Feb. 17, 2011 -- In season one, THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS officially bought the farm... now season two asks, "Can they keep it?" Dr. Brent Ridge and Josh Kilmer-Purcell never expected to win the hearts of America when the inexperienced city slickers left Manhattan to move to the country. However, television's two favorite "gentlemen farmers" did exactly that when they purchased the Beekman 1802 Farm in Sharon Springs, N.Y. This spring, Brent and Josh (along with Farmer John, Polka Spot the llama and a growing army of goats) return for season two of THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS, beginning March 22 on Planet Green at 10 PM (ET/PT).

THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS documents the adventure of a lifetime, as Brent, a former vice president of healthy living for Martha Stewart Living Omnimedia, and Josh, an advertising exec and best-selling author, try to generate enough income with Beekman 1802 so that Josh can leave his job in the city and live at the farm full time. With Josh in Manhattan and Brent three hours away at the farm, the couple has created a recipe for conflict. Although their first year of sacrifice is officially over, the struggles for the "gentleman farmers" are just beginning.

Season two introduces a new character to help calm the chaos -- handyman Dan -- and brings back many familiar faces, including Brent's friend and former employer, Martha Stewart, as well as surprise appearances by Rosie O'Donnell and well-known chef Marcus Samuelsson. Viewers also will be reunited with the one and only Farmer John; as well as Doug and Garth, the owners of the legendary American Hotel; and of course, Polka Spot the "diva llama" with attitude.

"We are thrilled to bring back THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS for a second season on Planet Green," says Laura Michalchyshyn, general manager and president of Planet Green. "In less than a year, Brent and Josh have become enduring signature faces on our network and have won legions of devoted fans. Beek-Geeks will go crazy for season two, as the stakes are raised and we see if THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS can keep their relationship and their Beekman 1802 business afloat. Of course, there is also a whole lot of llama drama."

THE FABULOUS BEEKMAN BOYS is executive produced by Randy Barbato, Fenton Bailey and Tom Campbell from World of Wonder. Angela Rae Berg is co-executive producer and director. Lynn Sadofsky is executive producer for Planet Green.
