Robert Redford Announces Green Sundance Channel

Grist brings us news that the man who paved the way for Brad Pitt to be celebrated as a hunky-Hollywood TreeHugger, Robert Redford, has announced the launch of Sundance Channel Green. The new channel will "present original series and documentary premieres about the earth’s ecology and concepts of 'green' living that balance human needs with responsible environmental stewardship." Programming on the new channel will include:
1. Original Series: Change Agents: a high energy, story and character-driven documentary series about the people and projects that are on the front lines of environmental sustainability and innovation.

2. Interstitial Series: Sundance Channel will launch several interstitial series that will highlight a range of environmental issues and offer viewers innovative suggestions to effect change in their own lives.

3. Documentaries: The block will feature compelling feature length documentary premieres and news specials on environmental subjects.

Viewers will be able to tune in to the new eco-channel in early 2007. ::Via Grist
