Animal Planet’s Vegan Show

The Animal Planet channel will air a show about a vegan baker this summer.

Animal Planet has announced that this summer it will air Sweet Avenger, a docu-soap about vegan baker and animal-rights activist Danielle Konya. The series will center around Konya, a 36-year old single mother and owner of Vegan Treats, a bakeshop based in Bethlehem, Penn. Konya hopes that Sweet Avenger will help people realize that vegan food is both satisfying and compassionate. “I want to show people that by eating a vegan confection, you’re directly saving the lives of cows, chickens, and thereby the environment and habitats of thousands of other exotic species,” says Konya. Veganism is gaining serious momentum on the silver screen: Martha Stewart is devoting an entire episode of her show to veganism today featuring Kathy Freston, Biz Stone, and Gene Baur.
