Another Green Show for HGTV and a Green House up for Grabs
Basking in the success of "Living with Ed" (check out TreeHugger's exclusive interview with star Ed Begley), HGTV is flush with new environmentally-focused programming for 2007. The home and lifestyle channel is geared to premier another green show and launch the first annual HGTV Green Home Giveaway.
"Red, Hot and Green," a new green design series, will premiere Sunday, June 10 at 9 pm ET/PT. Starring craftsman and green enthusiast Carter Oosterhouse and Eco-stylist Danny Seo, and hosted by Steven Lee, the show will "demonstrate that today's environmentally-focused designs can be fresh, stylish, and accessible," according to HGTV promotion material.
Based on the popular HGTV Dream Home program, the 2008 HGTV Green Home Giveaway will award one lucky viewer a custom-built, fully-furnished, home—constructed using eco-friendly materials, energy-saving appliances, and natural textiles.
This Fall, Oosterhouse will also star in the new series "Carter Can," premiering Saturday, October 6 at 10:30 am ET/PT. Although not billed as a green show, Carter will offer eco design alternatives during each episode. Also check out "Green Force", which recently premiered on HGTV Canada. ::HGTV
