James Franco announces new 'James Franco Presents' TV show

UPI News Service, 08/21/2013 

U.S. cable TV network Ovation says it plans to start airing "James Franco Presents," a program starring the actor, filmmaker, teacher and artist, this fall.

"James Franco is the ultimate artist, so partnering with James is a dream come true for Ovation," Robert Weiss, the network's chief creative officer, said in a statement Wednesday.

"And, 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."

The show will document Franco's "provocative explorations of the world of art," including his video diaries, gallery exhibits and his students' films, the network said.

"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," said Franco.

"I am thrilled to work with Ovation, a network that has devoted itself to the arts. It is a truly unique situation and will yield unique results."
