Ovation will team with actor, filmmaker, author and artist James Franco to launch a new original series premiering this fall.
The series, James Franco Presents, will document Franco’s explorations of art, from gallery exhibits to student films, according to network officials. Thousands of hours from Franco’s personal video library will be showcased on the series.
“James Franco is the ultimate artist, so partnering with James is a dream come true for Ovation,” said Robert Weiss, Ovation’s Chief Creative Officer in a statement. “Since Ovation's mantra is 'art is everywhere,' James is the perfect person through whom to introduce viewers to a modern, more inclusive definition of art."
