Ovation TV gives James Franco his own show
The Ovation channel announced that it's joining with the actor-writer-filmmaker on a new series, "James Franco Presents."
Ovation said the series will document Franco's explorations of the art world, including his gallery exhibits and other "passion projects."
The prime-time series also will include Franco's "heroes" in various areas of the arts, the channel reported.
The film actor has dabbled in TV since his breakout role in the series "Freaks and Geeks" in 1999, with appearances on "General Hospital" and hosting the 2011 Oscars with Anne Hathaway.
"James Franco Presents" will debut this fall on Ovation.
