TV & FILM

Look, I'll be the first person to admit that James Franco seems like a pretty cool dude. I'd love to hang out with him and talk about our mutual interests, such as William Faulkner novels and stoner culture. But seriously, enough is enough already. How many James Franco projects do we really, truly need?
Exactly. Zero more. And yet, there I was, minding my own business on the internet today, when I stumbled upon this:
No, friends, James Franco is not kidding. In addition to the ten other projects he currently has in the works, the man now has his own TV show on the Ovation network, whatever that is. (And no, I'm not going to look it up. You look it up.) The show is called James Franco Presents, and according to Variety, it is to be an 'unscripted look at his artistic life.'
What the hell does that mean? Basically, it means it's a reality show disguised as something high-minded and classy.
Sounds exciting, doesn't it?
