AUSTIN, TX and LOS ANGELES, CA (Jan. 21, 2014) - Whole Foods Market and Pivot, (www.pivot.tv), Participant Media's TV network targeting Millennials, announced today the launch of the television series "Dark Rye."

"Participant Media and Pivot's ethos is similar to that of Whole Foods Market, and we are honored to be working with a company that has already made such a mark on the film community."

The first season of "Dark Rye" will highlight topics ranging from artists seeking social justice to entrepreneurs rebuilding Detroit to culinary masters maintaining sustainable food traditions. "Dark Rye" joins a lineup on Pivot that includes "Please Like Me," "HITRECORD ON TV," and the network's late-night topical show "TakePart Live."

"Whole Foods Market and Dark Rye are the perfect foundation for the kind of engaging storytelling Pivot wants to bring viewers," said Kent Rees, EVP, Marketing, Scheduling and Operations at Pivot.
