PIVOT ORDERS NEW SEASON OF ECO-ADVENTURE SERIES "ANGRY PLANET"

All New Episodes Coming in April 2015

Participant Media's television network, Pivot, announced today that it has ordered a new season of the popular eco-adventure series, "Angry Planet," hosted by George Kourounis. The new episodes of "Angry Planet" will continue George's adventures as he travels to some of the most remote places on Earth, but this season he'll share how the changing environment is directly impacting our ever-increasing weather calamities. Season four, already in production, premieres in April of this year. The series is produced by Cineflix Media.

"'Angry Planet' is an eco-adventure series that dives into the center of nature's most awe-inspiring displays. We are thrilled to announce that we are giving the series a new life, with original action-packed episodes coming in April," said Belisa Balaban, EVP of Original Programming for Pivot, at the 2015 Television Critics Association's Winter tour. "George will be able to connect the dots between the increasing fury of the universe's natural wonders and the changing environment we live in, in ways we've never seen before."

The "Angry Planet" team doesn't shy away from danger; it goes looking for it. Kourounis -- who made headlines last year when he rappelled 1,200 feet to the mouth of an active volcano in the South Pacific -- will come face-to-face with the stark effects of the Earth's evolving climate as he travels from densely populated communities to remote outposts investigating the extreme natural conditions that are quickly becoming common place. From erupting volcanoes threatening thousands of lives in the Cabo Verde Islands, deadly wildfires raging across Australia, to Brazil's treacherous Rio Roosevelt, "Angry Planet" explores how our changing climate is directly impacting and endangering Earth's delicate eco-system and in turn the world's population.

"'Angry Planet' is about more than daredevil stunts; it's not danger for the sake of danger. We want to learn how some of the most volatile forces of nature are created and affected by climate change," said Kourounis. "You have to get up close to do that. The planet is going through some monumental changes and we're happy to take Pivot viewers along for the ride as we try to figure out what those changes mean."

"Angry Planet" is produced by Cineflix Media. Kim Bondi and Alex Bystram are amongst the executive producers for Cineflix. Peter Rowe serves as producer. Jeff Skoll and Christy Spitzer serve as executive producers for Pivot.
