American arts net Ovation TV has inked a multi-faceted partnership with fashion producer-distributor Videofashion.
The agreement will bring 60 hours of style programming to the network, including such series as Videofashion Style (13 x 30 minutes); Videofashion Specials: Swim (13 x 30 minutes); Videofashion Specials: Bridal (13 x 30 minutes); Videofashion Models (13 x 30 minutes); and The Year in Fashion (8 x 60 minutes).
Videofashion News, a weekly 30-minute fashion news series set to roll out this September alongside New York Fashion Week, will be produced exclusively for Ovation.
Elsewhere, the network has also expanded its relationship with YouTube film critic David Poland, ordering 30 additional episodes of the Ovation Studios-produced Celebrity Conversations with David Poland (pictured). The Santa Monica-based network has thus far aired episodes featuring Jake Gyllenhaal, Judd Apatow, Antoine Fuqua and Salma Hayek, with future guests slated to include Robert Redford, Ben Kingsley, and Lily Tomlin. The series will also begin airing in September.
“David Poland’s off-the-cuff interview style is a breath of fresh air in the celebrity interview genre. He’s honed his craft online and now we are providing a linear TV platform for an all-new series,” said Rob Canter, senior VP, head of production and media services at Ovation, in a statement. “We were drawn to the fact that he goes deeper in his interviews – focusing on the artist’s creative inspirations and processes.”
