Planet Green Invites Bergeron to ‘Supper’

Planet Green, Discovery Communications’ new environmentally oriented network, has signed Tom Bergeron as host for one of its first original series.

In the weekly series, “Supper Club,” Mr. Bergeron will host Hollywood dinner parties at the eco-friendly Venice, Calif., home of Universal Studios president Ron Meyer and his wife, Kelly, an environmental activist. Guests will discuss news and events in the green movement.

The series is set to start production in March.

Andy Friendly, last year named a production and development consultant to Planet Green, will executive produce the series. He previously hired Mr. Bergeron as a host of “Hollywood Squares” and “ABC’s Countdown to the Emmys.”

“Supper Club” is produced by Andy Friendly Productions in association with Discovery Studios.
