According to an article in NY Daily News, Actor James Franco recently announced that he will be hosting a new show entitled James Franco Presents which will air on Ovation TV. The show will make its inaugural appearance some time in November.
Ovation TV bills itself as the only art channel out there and will provide programming designed to feature how art is so influential in our daily lives. It has featured such presentations as the history of sneakers and a complete rundown of the latest Independent films.
Besides being an actor, Franco is also a painter and a writer who will present projects that will include the latest offerings from his students as well as his trips to many noted galleries. The show will run for ten one hour episodes and Franco will dip into his video library containing many past and future projects.
Many of his guests will include close friends who are icons in the art world. Franco will, also, produce and host the show. Franco was quoted saying, “This is a show where content dictates form and form dictates content. It is an art show that is an art piece, meaning the show has synched with the rhythms of my life and work.”
The Fine Art Studio of Rotblatt-Amrany is a major supporter of all things highlighting art. This TV show seems to be a great attempt at drawing attention to the art world and all it has to offer.
