The actor has been given his own TV show with Ovation; 'James Franco Presents,' in which he will discuss himself and art and himself...
James Franco is a talented guy, there's little evidence to say otherwise frankly, and when you have so much talent bottled up inside you there has to be a place to unload it all right? Enter the television network Ovation, who have given Franco a platform to display his prowess in front of an easel with the upcoming show James Franco Presents, a show about James Franco, his love of art and his works of art. Surely that's enough Franco for anyone, right?
A statement announcing the upcoming show was posted on Ovation's website this Wednesday (21 August) and detailed what it has in store for us when the show premieres in November. According to the statement on the site, the series will give viewers an "unprecedented look at the fascinating projects and real life adventures of James Franco...from his gallery exhibits to his students' films, the innovative series will also provide an exclusive opportunity to hear Mr. Franco's point of view on his most-personal passion projects, most of which have not been seen by the public."
James Franco Presents will consist of the This Is The End actor's own video diaries, as well as footage from some of his art films and taped discussions between himself and his heroes from the artistic world. The statement on the website went on to say, "With an intellectual curiosity as vast as his network of iconic artist friends, the series will expose renowned and respected icons to an entirely new generation... Hosted and executive produced by James himself, James Franco Presents will give viewers an extraordinary opportunity to travel across the world with him as he concocts his laboratory of creative projects."
