Now that "Project Runway" is over and out on Bravo and moving to Lifetime, something had to replace it! Drumroll….welcome Sarah Jessica Parker! On the bright side, SJP is taking over. On the dark side, it’s not a fashion show. "American Artist" is SJP’s brainchild and according to Hollywood Reporter, it’s an art
competition reality show. The show is being
co-developed by the creators of "Runway" and will employ the same style as PR in a competition series that takes on the art world.
Aspiring artists will compete to produce various styles of artwork
(painting, sculpting, etc.), which is then judged by a panel of experts. Um, yeah. That’s exciting….not so much. Looks like I will be forced to turn in to Lifetime.
Facing the loss of its top-rated show, Bravo has said it will significantly increase its development slate this year by about 45%, including opening up a fourth night of original programming on Mondays.
