AVERAGE JOE GOES VEGAN is a 12x30min food and lifestyle PBS series that takes viewers on a journey to discover the best in plant-based food around the country — from the point of view of your Average Joe!


WHY THIS MATTERS: How do we make an impact with regards to food and the environment today – how do we encourage change? With the human population escalating, people’s reliance on animals for food is coming into question. What’s more, demand for vegan food has exploded: plant-based foods are on track to be worth $162 billion by 2030, up from $29.4 billion in 2020 — a fivefold increase in under a decade. In a world consumed by an addiction to meat & dairy, the best spokesperson is someone who comes from that state of mind. TV has the potential to compel change, if it's engaging & entertaining. There’s an old adage, “Preach the gospel. And when necessary, use words.” We have to show what’s doable for the average Joe if an impact is desired. In Top Gun: Maverick, the naysayers converted when the impossible was shown to be possible. That’s where AVERAGE JOE GOES VEGAN shines: by showing change is possible. PRODUCTION TEAM: AVERAGE JOE GOES VEGAN is an iniosante production.
