Showtime has announced plans to address climate change in a new documentary series.

“Years Of Living Dangerously” will address the impact of human-induced climate change through first-person narratives, exploring solutions for the future. The hour-long series, planned to premiere in 2013 in six to eight segments, boasts an all-star cast both in front of and behind the camera.

According to the press release, Arnold Schwarzenegger, James Cameron and Jerry Weintraub are executive producers. As governor of California, Arnold Schwarzenegger was one of the biggest supporters of environmental issues, and launched the largest greenhouse gas emissions trading program in the U.S. In his blockbuster film “Avatar,” James Cameron grapples with themes of environmental injustice, and is an advocate of clean energy practices on his film sets.

Emmy-winning "60 Minutes" producers Joel Bach and David Gelber and climate expert Daniel Abbasi are also on the “Years Of Living Dangerously" production team.
