In May 2007, Greensburg, Kansas was leveled by one of the largest tornados in U.S. history. Very few structures remained in the aftermath of the deadly EF5 tornado, and the town lost everything. Inspired by the desire of the townspeople to rebuild ‘green,’ Planet Green
, along with executive producer Leonardo DiCaprio, is chronicling the rebuilding of Greensburg into an environment-conscious town. The epic docu-series is a mixture of compelling human stories and amazing feats of green building and engineering that will give the people of Greensburg a new home and a new town built for the future. "GREENSBURG
" will premiere on Planet Green on Sunday, June 15 at 9:00 PM ET/PT and will air every Sunday for 12 additional weeks.
With more than 1,500 people displaced by a tornado and scores waiting to return to their homes, Pilgrim Films is on the ground in Greensburg, KS creating a documentary of the destruction and green rebirth of the town. Executive Producers of "Greensburg"
the New series from Planet Green
are Kathryn Takis and Leonardo DiCaprio.
