YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY WILL ADDRESS GLOBAL WARMING
Showtime will broadcast a multi-night documentary series called Years of Living Dangerously, which will explore the human impact of climate change. Slated in 2013 in a planned six to eight one-hour episodes, the event will be executive produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub, Arnold Schwarzenegger, 60 Minutes producers Joel Bach and David Gelber, and climate expert Daniel Abbasi. Narrators will include talent in the caliber of Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Alec Baldwin.
“The recent devastation on the East Coast is a tragic reminder of the direct link between our daily lives and climate change,” said David Nevins, President of Entertainment for Showtime Networks. “This series presents a unique opportunity to combine the large-scale filmmaking styles of James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger — arguably some of Hollywood’s biggest movie makers –with the hard-hitting, intimate journalism of 60 Minutes veterans Joel Bach and David Gelber. I believe this combination will make for a thought-provoking television event.”
“We’ll make it exciting,” added James Cameron. “We’ll make it investigative. We’ll bring people the truth. And people are always hungry for the truth.”
