TV WEEK: Years of Living Dangerously series premiere billboard...

Years of Living Dangerously series premiere billboard
Don't be fooled by the title of this new documentary series from Showtime, it has nothing to do with 1982's The Year of Living Dangerously starring Sigourney Weaver and Mel Gibson, but everything to do with the human impact on climate change.

One thing Years of Living Dangerously does have in common with the film though, and that's an all-star cast, as the show's correspondents with feature such actors and celebrities as Harrison Ford, Matt Damon, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Jessica Alba, Olivia Munn, Don Cheadle, Ian Somerhalder and more famous names and passionate journalists besides.

Sometimes it takes some big names and familiar faces to get your point across, although you'd think all the catastrophic storms, wildfires and natural disasters the world seems to experience almost on a daily basis lately, would be enough to make people take notice.

This clever picture-within-a-picture creative for the new docu-series was snapped along Sunset Boulevard in West Hollywood on March 19, 2014.

Let's hope this big-budget, eight-part human story series can connect on an emotional level and help make a difference, where the scientific facts and figures have failed in the past.
