Ovation TV To Launch ‘Art Breakers’ Series

Ovation TV will examine the high stakes world of art collecting in a new original series debuting in October.

The series, Art Breakers, debuts Oct. 4 and features two top art advisers -- Miller Gaffney and Carol Lee Brosseau – as they seek to find the hottest artists, and commission show-stopping works, said network officials.

 “Miller and Carol Lee didn’t get to be the top art advisors for nothing. They’re young, in demand and know the art world inside and out,” said Scott Woodward, executive vice president of programming and production for Ovation TV in a statement. “In this series, Ovation viewers will get a ring-side seat as they take us along on some of their most challenging assignments.”

Story Monster TV will produce Art Breakers for Ovation, with Alex Duda, John Rieber and Emerlee Nelford serving as executive producers.
