Showtime to air climate-change documentary

'Years of Living Dangerously' examines global implications of weather patterns

Showtime is presenting an extended documentary on climate change.

Set to run next year in six to eight hourlong episodes, “Years of Living Dangerously” will examine global warming and its consequences.

Matt Damon, Don Cheadle and Alec Baldwin will serve as narrators, with journos such as New York Times columnist Thomas Friedman and two-time Pulitzer Prize winner Nicholas Kristof onboard.

Exec producers are James Cameron, Jerry Weintraub, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Maria Wilhelm, Joel Bach and David Gelber of “60 Minutes” as well as climate expert Daniel Abbasi.

“We’ll make it exciting. We’ll make it investigative,” Cameron said. “We’ll bring people the truth, and people are always hungry for the truth.”

Said Showtime topper David Nevins: “The recent devastation on the East Coast is a tragic reminder of the direct link between our daily lives and climate change. This will make for a thought-provoking television event.”
