Rapper/actor Chris “Ludacris” Bridges will join rocker Tommy Lee in a new reality series for Planet Green (Discovery Networks’ new channel) called Battleground Earth.
For the show, Luda and Tommy Lee will travel the country and compete in challenges that highlight environmental or “green” issues. For the series finale, the pair will join forces by co-headlining a concert at Los Angeles’ Greek Theater, with the proceeds benefiting Griffith Park.
“Battleground” is expected to begin production on ten episodes in the next few weeks for a late July or early August premiere.
Planet Green, a 24 hour network dedicated to people who live an ecological lifestyle, will debut in U.S. on June 4th.
In other Ludacris news, the rapper-turned-actor has just been cast in the Fox film “Max Payne” alongside Mark Wahlberg, Mila Kunis and Beau Bridges. His upcoming film projects include “Ball Don’t Lie,” which premieres at Tribeca, and Guy Ritchie’s “RocknRolla,” expected in October.
