Representatives for the premium cable network couldn't be reached for comment or confirmation regarding Damon's participation.
James Cameron (Avatar) and Jerry Weintraub (Nashville, The Karate Kid) are producing the series, which will focus on the man-made aspects of global warming. 60 Minutes producers David Gelber and Joel Bach are also attached to the project, which remains without financing or a set airdate.
