Organic, Eco-Friendly Restaurant Franchise to Be Featured on the Award-Winning Eco-Series "Big Ideas for a Small Planet" on Sundance Channel Tonight

FORT LAUDERDALE, FL--(Marketwire - September 29, 2009) - Pizza Fusion, pioneer of the eco-friendly restaurant movement which put organic pizza on the map, will be featured on Sundance Channel's award-winning original eco-series "Big Ideas for a Small Planet" tonight at 8:00pm e/p. The 13-part series airs as part of THE GREEN, Sundance Channel's weekly primetime destination devoted to environmental programming.

"Big Ideas for a Small Planet," the seminal documentary series on Sundance Channel and one of the first programs developed for THE GREEN, continues to be on the forefront of the discovery and discussion of green design, innovation, and process. Each week, a different green theme comes into focus through the work of three specific forward-thinking innovators -- from scientists to product and fashion designers; from entrepreneurs to first-time inventors -- inspiring audiences to incorporate green thinking and practices into all facets of their daily lives. It asks audiences to imagine a world in which we eat, build, and raise our children green, but this season it expands its scope to address communities, animals, and art, as well as sports, music, and greener ways to relax.

Tonight's episode focuses on green business. Pizza Fusion will be profiled for its industry leading approach to environmental restaurant service. Tonight's episode includes the following:
