New vegan docu-series Wicked Healthy World is currently being executively produced by vegan actor Woody Harrelson. The series will feature vegan chefs (and brothers) Chad and Derek Sarno, who will highlight individuals around the world—such as indoor mushroom farmers in South Korea and rooftop farmers in Tel Aviv—that are working to build a sustainable food system. “My brother and I are excited to meet other innovators who share our passion and who have developed solutions to bring about change,” Chad said about the new project. Harrelson penned the forward for the brothers’ first plant-based book The Wicked Healthy Cookbook, published in May. “Chad and Derek are doing some incredible work,” Harrelson wrote. “They are at the forefront of a plant-based movement that’s been building for decades and is now becoming a tsunami.” Derek currently works as the Executive Chef and Director of Plant Based Innovation at United Kingdom-based supermarket chain Tesco, and launched the Wicked Healthy line of plant-based grab-and-go meals—of which, the chain sold 2.5 million units within 20 weeks. The brothers are also part of the team behind Good Catch Foods, an upcoming vegan seafood brand that secured $8.7 million in investment capital last month.
