DESCRIPTION:
(from Pivot's press release, January 2014) Documenting the non-stop and deadline-driven world of an innovative New Jersey-based company touted as the "coolest little start-up in America," "TerraCycle" is a ten episode half-hour, comedic "occu-series" about an eccentric entrepreneur, Tom Szaky, and his staff, who have made it their mission to eliminate the concept of waste. A 32-year-old businessman and Princeton University dropout, Tom's multimillion-dollar business (which operates in 24 countries) takes anything and everything that is land-fill bound -- from potato chip bags to cigarette butts -- and recycles, up-cycles and transforms them into cool and functional new products. TerraCycle is a place where visionary thinking is celebrated. A mix of hippie types who take time away from their desk to share in some kale chips or morning yoga vs. the older and more skeptical staff who find the younger set to be a "bit naïve." The one thing all the employees have in common is a passion for the "brand" and a willingness to do what it takes to get the job done. Produced by Ken Druckerman, Banks Tarver and Anneka Jones of Left/Right (Mob Wives, Small Town Security, This American Life), the series is executive produced by Jeff Skoll and Belisa Balaban who is also executive in charge of production for Pivot.
