MSNBC reports that Leonardo DiCaprio is working with television producers to air a new reality show that will focus on turning a town "into a “‘green’ utopia of tomorrow.”
“We’re going to take a devastated community and help transform it as a prototype for the future,” Executive producer Craig Piligian said. “At the end of the day, we’re all going to have to change the way we live, the way we burn and use fuel ... We’re trying to show the country and the world by example, town by town by town, how we can change the way we live and fight global warming.”
After watching the members of the town struggle to transform themselves, the show will feature a "call to action" with information about how people can get involved with environmental programs.
I could find no word on whether DiCaprio would make an appearance on the show.
If a network picks this show up, it will be interesting to see if this can get viewership on the scale of "Survivor" or "The Amazing Race." If so, the educational opportunities of this type of show are significant simply due to the number of people that could pay attention to the issue!
