On set shooting Human Resources on Pivot TV

Following a successful first season, Participant Media and Pivot TV will begin airing the sophomore season of the network’s critically-acclaimed ‘docu-comedy’ Human Resources which premiers Friday, August 7 at 10PM ET/PT.

Terracycle CEO Tom Szaky on Pivot TV's Human ResourcesThe show follows Terracycle CEO and Founder Tom Szaky (right) and his young passionate staff as they launch new recycling programs, help take marathons to Zero Waste, donate recycled playgrounds to elementary schools, run college campus recycling contests and other recycling adventures.

Airing every Friday for the next 10 weeks, each episode of Human Resources deals with a different sustainable ‘project’ (often times wacky). In the upcoming season, viewers will get a front row seat as they head to London to upcycle coffee pods, build a  playground from oral hygiene waste, and most importantly, continue to come up with bigger and better ways of transforming what we consider “trash.”  “Human Resources” is produced by Left/Right.

Viewers will also get an inside look at how a group of passionate, entrepreneurial twenty-somethings deal with a visionary boss and the elusive work-life balance!

Called “spunky” by the New York Times and “refreshing” by, the unscripted series follows New Jersey-based recycling company TerraCycle and its eclectic employees who are on a mission to recycle the “unrecyclables,” Irreverently funny and diverse, the staff is on a mission to change the world—one cigarette butt, dirty diaper, and toothpaste tube at a time.

“Human Resources is an unexpected blend of classic workplace comedy within  the structure of a process-driven science show,” commented Belisa Balaban  EVP Original Programming for Pivot. “It is distinctive and delightful, and it’s a reality show you can feel good about watching.”

“Human Resources” is produced by Left/Right. For more information about the show and to learn where to catch it in your area, visit Human Resources.
