(Relaxnews) "James Franco Presents", an art show hosted by actor James Franco, will debut in November on Ovation TV, a cable channel specializing in the arts, the actors and the network have announced.

Adding to his talents as actor, director, author and screenwriter, Franco will soon be a TV host: each week Ovation TV will give Franco an hour of air-time to discuss art, a passion he's developed over the years.

Viewers will see Franco reveal his own works of art via his personal video library, which includes thousands of hours of video diaries, art film footage, and discussions with his artistic heroes.

Franco is not the only big-screen star to share another passion with audiences: Idris Elba, star of Luther, is preparing a car-racing documentary called King of Speed for the BBC.
