The Sundance channel has a couple of new series coming up, and both look interesting.

The Green, which is a weekly 30 minute look at how people and businesses are adopting eco friendly technologies was a big hit last year, and they are going forward with a Season two. This was a great show, and definitely one of the TV high spots of 2007.

“The Green is television’s first regularly-scheduled programming destination dedicated entirely to the environment. Presented by Robert Redford, the destination is hosted by award-winning journalist Simran Sethi and community advocate and MacArthur Fellow Majora Carter, two dynamic leaders who have distinguished themselves with revolutionary ideas in such areas as civic planning and global business practices.”

I have not seen the episode details yet, but I am sure this season will be even better than last season.

Sundance is also premiering On The Road In America, which looks like it could be a most revealing series. Take 4 young men of Arab origin and put them in an RV for 10 weeks and let them explore America. There will be culture clashes, there will be friction, but will there be harmony as well?

Conceived with the intent to expose Middle Eastern audiences to the diversity and uniqueness of the United States and Americans, “On the Road in America” ultimately highlights the differences and similarities between the two cultures and facilitates a deeper understanding of each.

Blogger News will be covering both of these series, so stay tuned.
