James Franco (ex-Franco, "General Hospital") will both star and executive produce an unscripted series titled, "James Franco Presents," which is set to premiere in November on the cable network Ovation. The show will explore and highlight the artistic passions and projects that Franco is continually involved with. It will provide viewers the opportunity to learn about the various facets of the professional's life including his art and educational work.
Ovation CCO Robert Weiss stated that "James Franco Presents" can be characterized as an anthology docuseries rather than a reality show. "The show sees the word of art through James' eyes. All the different exploits that James is involved in, this show encompasses. This series with James Franco is the biggest series to ever be on Ovation," Weiss said. "James Franco Presents" will mark Franco's first primetime series since his role on the NBC show, "Freaks & Geeks."
