Sarah Jessica Parker has pitched a new idea for an art reality show to Bravo. You can see below for the whole astounding story. Despite coming from the woman who played SanDeE from one of my favorite Steve Martin art-themed movies L.A. Story, I am not sure how this will fly (although I will likely tune in just to witness it). Nevertheless, I don't think it can hold a candle to our locally-minted art game show, Art Show Down.
Be sure to check out some of Art Show Down's past episodes! They are beautifully designed and wonderfully hysterical. Highlights include Episode 1, with games such as "Auction Price is Right" and "Schmooze and Booze." In the latter, a contestant has to eat as much cheese and drink as much * correction * Tabasco-flavored seltzer as possible while simultaneously talking up and name dropping with a curator (pictured & linked above). Don't miss it!
From REUTERS: LOS ANGELES (Hollywood Reporter):
Sarah Jessica Parker's art-competition reality show has found a home at Bravo.
The network has picked up "American Artist," a "Project Runway"-style series that takes on the art world.
Aspiring artists compete to produce various styles of artwork (painting, sculpting, etc.), which is then judged by a panel of experts. Parker's Pretty Matches production company is helping develop the project.
If ordered to series, the show would give Bravo another skill-driven reality show to its lineup, along with "Top Chef" and "Top Design."
