Leo gets real

Leonardo DiCaprio is helping to develop a reality TV series that will focus on the environment.

"E-topia," will chronicle the eco-friendly reconstruction of a U.S. town (location yet to be determined) as it is transformed into a "green" community of the future.

The project, which is currently being shopped around to broadcast networks, will document the transformation as eco-idealists, planners and architects work with construction workers who aren't used to the demands of a "green" lifestyle.

Fellow exec producer Craig Pillgian said, "We're going to take a devastated community and help transform it as a prototype for the future. We're trying to show the county and the world by example, town by town by town, how we can change the way we live and fight global warming." Leo will serve as co-creator and executive producer.
