Talking about the programme, Zac said: "We're travelling around the world to find some new perspectives on some very old problems.

"Food, water and energy are all the main staples for modern life. We're going to see some top eco innovators to see how change is an inside job. And we're going to be eating really, really well.

"We need to start rethinking how we consume everything, from our food to our power. Change has to start somewhere. Maybe it's about time we all changed. It's time to get down to earth."

This project seems like a curveball for Zac, what's the deal?

Actually, Zac has a history of speaking out on the need to implement global sustainability solutions.

Earlier this year, the former High School Musical star took part in a programme titled the Great Global Cleanup for the Discovery Channel.

The actor clearly a vested personal interest in the cause - and going by the trailer, this shines through during the show.
