Planet Green is starting the new year with an entirely new line-up of programming. In addition to bring you new episodes of old favorites like Living With Ed and Emeril Green, the network will also be launching premiers of several innovative series from England and Canada.Blood, Sweat, & Takeaways follows a group of fast-food addicted teens as they venture through the production chain of their favorite meals. The food seems less appetizing when they have to work alongside poorly-paid workers in terrible conditions.

In Big Chef Takes on Little Chef Heston Blumenthal, a Michelin-starred chef, fights to revive a dying roadside diner franchise called Little Chef. Can he create a menu the reinvigorates traditional English fare and help this dusty chain become a success again?

What do you get when you ask a star-chef to open a restaurant staffed by inmates? Conviction Kitchen, that's what. Watch as one executive chef fights to organize his rag-tag crew in time for opening night.

Blood, Sweat & T-Shirts takes a group of high-street fashion victims and puts them to work on a clothing assembly line in India. The shopaholics learn the hard way about the true cost of their fashion habits.

Nobody likes traffic but there are few people who actually try to do anything about it. The Woman Who Stopped Traffic shows us what happens when one person tries. Kris Murrin takes on the traffic problems of England's three most congested towns and attempts to stop the madness for one day. The obstacles are tremendous, but if she can succeed, she shows us all that anything is possible with motivation and innovation.

From the kitchen to the farm, the prison to the factory, Planet Green is offering exciting new programming that will change the way you look at the world.

Don't miss a minute this January on Planet Green.
