Discovery Communications’ green network, Planet Green (which will soon be launching in 50 million homes), has just announced a new 10-episode series called, Wasted, hosted by Annabelle Gurwitch and handyman Holter Graham.
Wasted will feature a spectrum of households that will get three weeks to reduce their general consumption, and will then be rewarded cash based on their planetary savings. So think like Extreme Home Makeover with less tears and lower property taxes.
Hostess, Annabelle Gurwitch, has been involved with environmental causes for years and is often featured discussing them on the NPR program, Day to Day, and writes a column for The Nation. She also writes, directs, and narrates the webisode series, My Big Fat Environmental Crisis.
If I had cable, I’d be all over this show like sunlight on solar panels (come on, at least give me credit for trying).
