Ovation TV has acquired the rights to a documentary chronicling actress Isabella Rossellini’s one-woman show Green Porno Live!, the network said Monday.

The documentary, which will air on Ovation in Spring 2015, will follow the international star as she prepares for her show, based on her short film catalog Green Porno which looks at the mating habits of animals. Sundance Channel aired a series based on the short Green Porno films, which are a longtime source of inspiration for the famed model and actress.

“Don’t let Isabella Rossellini’s quiet elegance fool you for one second! In her live show, she explains animal reproduction like you’ve never seen it before,” says Scott Woodward, senior vice president of programming and production for Ovation TV, in a statement. “This documentary shows the evolution of her incredibly original Green Pornos, from short films to stage show, and how she prepares her costumes, works on dialogue, and deals with the technical and logistical issues. She controls it all. It’s her passion project and Ovation TV is the perfect home for this wildly comic and entertaining special.”
