Planet Green Orders Farm Revival Series


Planet Green has greenlit docuseries Beekman 1802 to join the network's primetime lineup in late spring.

Beekman Farm is anirreverent peek into the world of Josh Kilmer-Purcell and Brent Ridge, a fish-out-of-water couple who are reviving a farm in upstate NY in order to create a new organic lifestyle brand, Beekman 1802.

The series, produced by Fenton Bailey and Randy Barbato's World of Wonder (Tori and Dean: Home Sweet Hollywood, Man Shops Globe), uncovers how the couple's city slicker skill-set doesn't mean much when it comes to wrangling pigs and making goat's milk cheese. The network has ordered 10 episodes.

"We believe that a farm can be much larger than its fences. If someone told us that we'd trade in New York City for eighty goats, two pigs, a dozen chickens and a narcissistic llama, we would have told them that they were crazy," Kilmer-Purcell and Ridge said in a statement.. "It turns out that we are."
