Unfolding over nine one-hour episodes, this first-of-its-kind series, will include correspondents:

· Jessica Alba (actress, author and co-founder of The Honest Company) follows three Climate Corps fellows as they attempt to green the corporate sector.

· Mark Bittman (food journalist, author, and New York Times columnist) shoots two pieces: he explores rising sea levels and the aftermath of Super Storm Sandy, with a focus on Union Beach, New Jersey; and, in an investigation that takes him all across the country, he tries to determine just how clean natural gas is.

· Don Cheadle (star of the SHOWTIME series HOUSE OF LIES) reports on the severe droughts in the Southwest, and sees if a town in Texas can rebound.

· Matt Damon (Elysium) examines the public health impact of heat waves as they sweep across Los Angeles and other cities around the globe.

· America Ferrera (Ugly Betty) explores wind and solar power: if they're so good, why are so many people trying to block them?

· Harrison Ford (42) travels to Indonesia to report on deforestation and the struggle to prevent it.

· Thomas Friedman (journalist, New York Times columnist and author) investigates how climate change impacts national sovereignty in the Middle East.

· Michael C. Hall (star of the SHOWTIME series DEXTER(R)) goes to Bangladesh to see a vision of our climate-changed future.

· Chris Hayes (MSNBC's All In) shoots two pieces involving Super Storm Sandy: a U.S. congressman comes face to face with climate change when extreme weather hits close to home; two Far Rockaway families endure the winter following the destructive storm.

· Olivia Munn (The Newsroom) reports from Washington State as a new governor makes combating global warming a top priority.

· Dr. M. Sanjayan (lead scientist at The Nature Conservancy) sets out on an epic journey around the world to see the effects of climate change firsthand. Will he be convinced that climate change is real?

· Arnold Schwarzenegger (former Governor of California) treks deep into the forests of the American West, following a team of elite "Hot Shot" firefighters as they face what could be one of the worst fire seasons yet.

· Ian Somerhalder (The Vampire Diaries) follows Anna Jane Joyner, the 28-year-old daughter of Evangelical preacher Rick Joyner, as she tries to convince congregations and preachers across North Carolina - including her father - that they need to join the fight.

· Lesley Stahl (60 Minutes correspondent) travels to Greenland to explore the fate of the Arctic as global temperature increases melt the ice sheet at an unprecedented rate and unlock all sorts of new riches.

YEARS OF LIVING DANGEROUSLY is executive produced by James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub, Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger, along with Emmy(R)-winning former 60 Minutes producers Joel Bach and David Gelber, and climate expert Daniel Abbasi. The series is co-executive produced by Maria Wilhelm (Avatar Alliance Foundation). Dr. Joseph Romm (ClimateProgress.org) serves as the chief science editor.
