Passionate Hollywood Actors and Producers Joining the Production to Raise Awareness of the Effects of Climate Change Include Jack Black, Ty Burrell, James Cameron, Thomas Friedman, Joshua Jackson, David Letterman, Aasif Mandvi, Olivia Munn, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ian Somerhalder, and Cecily Strong With More Names to Be Announced Soon

(WASHINGTON, D.C. - September 17, 2015) National Geographic Channel (NGC) (@NatGeoChannel) and The Years Project announced today the return of the Emmy(R) award-winning documentary series Years of Living Dangerously, a thought-provoking and ambitious cinematic television event that will delve even deeper into the highly debated issue of climate change. The new season of the critically acclaimed series will air exclusively on NGC in 2016 in 171 countries and 45 languages. For more information, visit yearsoflivingdangerously.com and follow @YearsOfLiving on Twitter.

Years of Living Dangerously will once again feature some of Hollywood's biggest influencers who are passionate about environmental issues, and will reveal emotional and hard-hitting accounts of the effects of climate change from across the planet.

Correspondents will include Jack Black, Ty Burrell, James Cameron, Thomas Friedman, Joshua Jackson, David Letterman, Aasif Mandvi, Olivia Munn, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Ian Somerhalder and Cecily Strong - with more names to be announced soon - all giving first-person accounts from locations, shockingly close to home, where the effects of climate change are most prevalent. They will cover crucial issues like severe hurricanes, historic droughts and the rapidly increasing extinction rate of our planet's wildlife. The result will be a gritty and raw look at not only how our species has impacted our planet, but also how we can save it for future generations.

"Years of Living Dangerously is bold, audacious and has a proven track record. By combining the access and reputation of National Geographic with Hollywood's brightest minds and journalism's heaviest hitters, we plan to create even greater impact with the new season and awaken all of us to the reality of our global situation," said Courteney Monroe, CEO, National Geographic Channels. "National Geographic has an unrivaled 127-year history of inspiring people to care about the planet, and this series will carry on that legacy and be supported by the incredible global reach of the National Geographic brand that is unmatched in television today."

"With the unparalleled global reach and inside access of National Geographic, we are going to raise the bar even higher this season and shed light on the catastrophic changes taking place on our planet through the lenses and investigative reporting of top Hollywood influencers," said Joel Bach from The Years Project. "We're also going to focus much more this season on solutions that individuals, communities, companies and even governments can use to address worldwide climate change."

"Communicating more effectively about the need to create a clean energy future is my mission and I am honored to be given the opportunity once again to be a part of this very evocative series," added returning contributor and executive producer Arnold Schwarzenegger. "It is absolutely unacceptable that seven million people die every year from pollution. The time for action is now. This season, I hope to make an even more powerful statement that will inspire people to lead and demand change to make our world a better place for future generations."

The first season, which aired in multiple countries on National Geographic Channel, was hailed as "the most important television series ever," "unexpected, character-driven stories" and "compelling, and frankly terrifying." Years of Living Dangerously won the 2014 Emmy(R) Award for Outstanding Documentary or Nonfiction Series and was executive produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub and Arnold Schwarzenegger, along with Emmy(R)-winning "60 Minutes" producers Joel Bach and David Gelber, and climate expert Daniel Abbasi.

National Geographic will support this important project with all of its global resources, including a comprehensive collection of the society's climate change education resources launched today.
