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."
