Brothers Chad (pictured, left) and Derek Sarno (right) are taking their plant-based cooking to television with Tin Rocket Entertainment’s Wicked Healthy World, executive produced by Hollywood actor Woody Harrelson.

The original series will follow the Sarnos on their globe-trotting search for healthy foods and a healthier world population.

The Sarnos’ travels will take them to indoor mushroom farms in South Korea, organic rooftop farms in Tel Aviv and more in a quest to recognize the people driving the sustainable food movement.

This is the second piece of IP Harrelson, an outspoken vegan advocate, has worked on with the Sarnos. In his foreward to their May 2018 book The Wicked Healthy Cookbook, Harrelson noted the brothers’ established presence in the space.

“Chad and Derek are doing some incredible work,” he writes. “They are at the forefront of a plant-based movement that’s been building for decades and is now becoming a tsunami.”

No broadcaster or hosting platform has yet been announced for Wicked Healthy World. If it finds a home, it will be the first credit for Tin Rocket Entertainment, founded by veteran producers Jerry D’Alessandro and Lisa Tanzer.

Wicked Healthy World (working title) will be produced by Tin Rocket Entertainment, with Harrelson executive producing alongside D’Alessandro, Tanzer and Ira Chute.
