Jeff Gaspin, President of Bravo, today unveiled a new reality series pilot for a show named “Ready, Set, Van Gogh!" as the cable channel seeks to achieve a new identity with original programming. “Our new pilots push the concept that we’re willing to be independent and experimental, to challenge and entertain our viewers,” said Gaspin. “We want to be the first stop for creative people who have an edgy concept or are ahead of the curve in TV programming.”

“Ready, Set, Van Gogh!” is an “extreme arts” competitive reality show that could be generally expressed as a cross among “Junkyard-Wars”-meets-“Iron-Chef”-meets-the-arts.

Dani Behr (“Extra”) hosts as each episode will feature three different arts competitions, with a trio of professional artists competing to win at their respective specialty. The pilot will feature chainsaw tree carving, beach sand sculpture and junk art.

With the clock ticking -- and no prep time -- artists have to create a mesmerizing work that will be judged by a panel of experts versed in the same art forms to determine the winner. Subsequent episodes will follow other extreme art forms, including graffiti, pavement and body art.

“Ready, Set, Van Gogh” is a one-hour pilot to be produced by GRP Productions (Gay Rosenthal).
