What do you get when you combine a former Martha Stewart Vice President, a drag queen turned ad exec and New York Times bestselling author, an estate and farm in upstate New York, a few quirky neighbors and goats, pigs and a llama to boot? A really good country song? An awesome pair of overalls? Nope! You get Planet Green’s newest show The Fabulous Beekman Boys, which premieres TONIGHT at 9 p.m. (EST).
Here’s the deal: Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge have said goodbye to their home in NYC and headed to a farm upstate to create a new organic lifestyle brand, ‘Beekman 1802’. What ensues is a zany, complicated adventure about two city boys who are trying to make their way in the sticks.
“We believe that a farm can be much larger than its fences. If someone told us that we’d trade in New York City for eighty goats, two pigs, a dozen chickens and a narcissistic llama, we would have told them that they were crazy,” said Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge. “It turns out that we are.”
Curious to see if Josh and Brent can pull it off? Tune into Planet Green tonight at 9 p.m. (EST) and find out! Also, make sure to follow @planetgreen on Twitter and tune-in as the duo live tweets throughout the episode.
