The New York Observer has information on a new special that sends a “green team” to celebrity homes to perform an eco-makeover. It was only a matter of time before this concept made its way to your television screen. But celebrities? What about the average Jack and Jill? I think Edward Norton should get involved with this and — much like his solar neighbors program — develop the idea that any celebrity home that goes green should then pony up the cash for a less-fortunate family to go green as well. Makes sense, right?
Anyways, apparently the NYO got the scoop from John Bruce, a Brooklyn-based designer who is a member of that “green team”. The first few shows will take place in LA; with one episode having actor Ron Livingston using reclaimed wood from Gregory Peck’s house. In the wild, it’s not uncommon for Hollywood stars to cannibalize each other’s homes. Rarely caught on film.
The show will air during the EcoZone Project television specials on Earth Day and then on FOX on May 22nd. That’s all we can gather for now, but we’ll let you know once those press releases start making the rounds.
