SHOWTIME's Free Weekend Pairs ‘Years of Living Dangerously' With White House Climate Report's Release
From the second SHOWTIME announced that it would premiere the first-ever series fully influenced by climate change, Years of Living Dangerously's relevance was obvious. Now, SHOWTIME has made it even more timely.
The cable network has announced a free preview weekend that allows the customers of most of the largest providers to view the network for free from May 9 to 11. With its documentary-style look at climate-related events from journalists and environmentally conscious Hollywood stars like Don Cheadle and Ian Somerhalder, Years will effectively provide a visual component of the White House's National Climate Assessment.
The network's preview provides a look at the first four episodes of the James Cameron-produced show, on demand. AT&T U-Verse, Comcast, Cox Communications and DIRECTV are among the providers participating in the preview.
"Years gives us the visual highlights of the National Climate Assessment," said climate scientist and Texas Tech University Professor Katharine Hayhoe. "From droughts in the Southwest to coastal flooding on the east coast, art imitates life.
"Except this time, it's real."
