HBO’s “Saving My Tomorrow” to feature footage from Appalachian Voices


This coming Monday, HBO will premiere an entirely new documentary series that celebrates the children who will inherit the planet and their appreciation of the wonders of the natural world. A lyrical mix of science, animation, and music, “Saving My Tomorrow” is a call from kids to kids to help take care of the planet.

The show premieres Monday, Dec. 15 at 7:00 p.m. on HBO.

Appalachian Voices proudly contributed to the series, providing high-resolution flyover images of mountaintop removal coal mines and coal-fired power plants, as well as beautiful footage of the Appalachian mountains.


Each episode of “Saving My Tomorrow” will feature kids sharing their thoughts on subjects ranging from endangered animals to climate change, while exploring stories about the plants and animals that are affected.

“Earth is our home. We only have one and if we mess this up… where do we go next? We don’t have another earth right next to us, just in case we lose this one,” says Hippocrates Polemis, an eight-year-old featured in “Saving My Tomorrow.”

The series is a fun and engaging educational program perfect for elementary school children and their families. Check out the trailer:

The series will include readings by Alan Cumming, Tina Fey, Liam Neeson, Susan Sarandon, Neil deGrasse Tyson, Jeffrey Wright and more, as well as an appearance by Pharrell Williams and musical performances by Lennon & Maisy, Ziggy Marley, Elizabeth Mitchell, Jason Mraz, Willie Nelson, Karen O, Pete Seeger, They Might Be Giants and Dan Zanes.
