The Lazy Environmentalist (2009)
**Premieres the same night on the Sundance Channel**

The Lazy Environmentalist operates on the theory that consumers should not settle for an expensive and/or inferior product simply because it is environmentally-friendly. In season two, it is Josh’s mission to bring individuals from all walks of life, from fashion designers to exterminators to surfers and day care center operators, guidance towards a green lifestyle. Dorfman works to prove that eco-friendly living can be achieved with little sacrifice, and even make their professional and private lives easier.

Be Good Johnny Weir/Episode 1: "Pop Star on Ice" (2010)

Outspoken, brainy and controversial, figure skater Johnny Weir brings a larger-than-life persona to the sport. He is also a bona fide prodigy, having won the Junior World title at age 16, just four years after taking up figure skating. But after Johnny fails to win a medal at the 2006 Winter Olympics, the media turns on him and he feels the backlash. As he seeks to regain his professional momentum, Johnny struggles to balance the rigors of his sport with his natural inclination for frivolity and fun (like shopping excursions with his best friend, Paris). Meanwhile, his quasi-familial relationship with his first and only coach, Priscilla Hill, is beginning to show signs of the strain of multiple setbacks.
