At first I read the above as “Battlefield Earth” and thought we were going to be treated to another round of John Travolta dressed as a Klingon-type thing.
Thankfully, Battleground Earth is the name of yet another new series set to debut on Discovery’s Planet Green network. The show is 10-episode reality series that will pit various celebrities against each other in green-themed competitions. From the article,
“Battleground will feature Chris “Ludacris” Bridges and Tommy Lee criss-crossing the country competing in various challenges designed to highlight green issues. The series will culminate with the two artists converging in Los Angeles to co-headline a concert at the Greek Theater with proceeds benefiting Griffith Park.”
Interesting. Planet Green’s Eileen O’Neill said Battleground is designed to emphasize entertainment over eco-preaching; something that Discovery is going to have to work hard to find a balance to should they risk turning off viewers. Cameras are expected to start rolling on the series in two to three weeks. Dig it?
