Planet Green Debuts

Ever watched the Discovery Home Channel? Not me. And most likely, not you. So when Discovery Network decided to launch a new eco-themed channel, Planet Green, the powers that be decided to relinquish Home's digital cable space to Planet Green.

To be honest, I probably wouldn't be excited about the new channel, except that my pal, Eileen O'Neill, is head of the new network, and has worked like a demon to more than a year to kickstart the project. Unlike most new cable networks, she had to start from scratch -- all the shows on Project Green were developed specifically for the channel. If my radar is correct, expect less haranguing and more entertainment than you might expect.

Project Green debuts at 6:00 P.M. tomorrow, Wednesday, but I was told to tune in five minutes early -- there is a little surprise in the transition process.

Break a leg, Eileen.
