Participant Media-owned U.S. net Pivot has greenlit environment-focused docuseries The Operatives (pictured) and set a premiere date for its previously announced entrepreneur-oriented series Welcome to Fairfax,.

The programs were unveiled at a TCA press tour presentation on Friday (July 11). The 8 x 60-minute series The Operatives - an original series acquired from Zodiak Rights – chronicles the author and eco-activist Pete Bethune and his team of extreme conservationists, who travel the world exposing those harming vulnerable wildlife, natural resources and ecosystems around the world.

“I’m thrilled to be working with Pivot on this new, action-packed series that tackles environmental and wildlife issues in a way you have never seen before on television,” said Bethune. “Pivot has a history of supporting ground-breaking conservation documentaries and series, and to have them bring our series to their network is awesome.”

The net also revealed that the Matador-produced, 10 x 30-minute docuseries Welcome to Fairfax - on young entrepreneurs living and working in the Fairfax district of Los Angeles – will debut on October 17 during its 10 p.m. hour, alongside a comedic improv series.
