James Franco Is Getting His Own TV Show, and It’s Our Own Fault
You didn’t think Comedy Central’s upcoming roast of celebrity multitasker James Franco would be the last we’d see of the ‘This Is the End‘ star on TV, did you? Silly, you. The Franco will soon move to the small screen to host his own ‘James Franco Presents’ on the Ovation network, filling a desperate hole in the world to answer the question of how James Franco does James Franco. Plus, James Franco!
First teased over Instagram with a photo of Franco photoshopped over a painting of Vincent Van Gogh (like one does), the show has been described as, “an unprecedented look at the fascinating projects and real-life adventures of Mr. Franco. ‘James Franco Presents’ will document his provocative explorations of the world of art. 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.”
The hourlong weekly series will first debut on Ovation in November, if we can all collectively agree to hold out that long. “James Franco is the ultimate artist, so partnering with James is a dream come true for Ovation,” said Ovation’s Chief Creative Officer Robert Weiss in a statement. “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.”
