Leonardo DiCaprio is behind the TV series, Greensburg, about the green rebuilding of a Kansas town that was almost destroyed by a tornado. The series will return for a second season on May 3, on Planet Green.

The show follows the residents of Greensburg as they rebuild their lives, homes, and community after an EF5 tornado, one of the strongest in American history. The town is rebuilding using products and practices that are good for the environment. The picture below shows the town the day after the tornado. Scary, isn't it?

The show is executive produced by Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company, Appian Way and Craig Piligian’s Pilgrim Films and Television. DiCaprio is one of Hollywood's most active green celebrities, and he has made the rebuilding of Greensburg a personal project and a green initiative.

This show and the town of Greensburg is close to my heart, since I grew up in Wichita, Kansas. I think it's great Leo has done so much for this town.

What do you think about Greensburg? Have you seen the TV series?
