sundance logoYesterday, the Sundance Channel unveiled two new summer eco-series additions to its reality block The Green. Outrageous Wasters, which begins July 1st at 9 p.m. ET, is a four-part series that follows a family as they get a crash course in living green. And the second season of It's Not Easy Being Green premieres July 29th at 9 p.m. ET. This show follows three experts as they travel around Britain helping people reach their eco-goals.

"International television networks have been ahead of the pack in creating upbeat and entertaining green programming. Sundance Channel's THE GREEN block is the perfect place to showcase these lively, fun and sometimes outrageous eco-reality shows from around the globe," so says Sundance Channel EVP and GM Programming and Creative Affairs, Laura Michalchyshyn.

Is this programming progressive? Does it focus on important issues? Yes, of course. Will it be entertaining? Well, that remains to be seen. Do these shows sound like something you'd watch this summer?

I was very impressed by the way it focused more on the innovative technology and out-of-the-box thinking by the designers of the eco-friendly modular homes, rather than hammering me with statistics about how many resources our homes consume.
