Ovation goes Inside the Actors Studio

Arts-focused US cablenet Ovation has become the new home of long-running celebrity interview series Inside The Actors Studio.

New episodes of the series, which has aired on Comcast-owned rival cable channel Bravo since it began in 1994, will air on Ovation towards the end of 2019.

Ovation will produce and air all future episodes of the show, which interviews Hollywood stars about their craft, following an agreement with The Actors Studio. It will continue to be shot at the Michael Schimmel Centre for the Arts at Pace University’s New York City campus.

As part of the new agreement, the network will also curate content from the series’ extensive library for additional episodes.

James Lipton, the series’ creator, original host and executive producer, will turn the microphone over to a number of rotating guest hosts, who are in consideration now by the network and The Actors Studio.

More than 200 guests have appeared on the show over the last two decades, including Sally Field, Ellen Burstyn, Alec Baldwin, Bradley Cooper, Brad Pitt, Sidney Pollack, Carol Burnett, Jessica Lange and Julia Roberts.

The series has received 20 Emmy nominations in the Outstanding Informational Series or Special category. The series received an Emmy in this category in 2013. Lipton also won the Critics Choice award for Best Host in 2015.
