Who better to put together a documentary about the effects of greenhouse gases than a film director with a carbon footprint bigger than size of Pandora together with an actor and former California governor who took a jet to work every day and drives a Hummer? For a project that revolves around the burning fossil fuels, we demand to be lectured by experts, and we’ve got ‘em:
Arnold Schwarzenegger is reuniting with director James Cameron for a new documentary series on climate change.
The series, “Years of Living Dangerously,” will air on Showtime in 2013 and “will explore the human impact of climate change,” according to a statement from the network. It will consist of six to eight one-hour episodes.
Schwarzenegger is an executive producer of the series, along with Cameron, film producer Jerry Weintraub and Joel Bach and David Gelber, who have worked on “60 Minutes.” The series will feature New York Times columnists Thomas Friedman and Nicholas Kristof, as well as MSNBC host Chris Hayes, according to Showtime.
The series will be rated PG-13 for extreme depictions of Gore.
When I first heard Arnold was involved in a project called “Years of Living Dangerously,” I assumed it was going to be about… you know… something else.
