Ovation TV has taken another piece of the art world.

The cable channel has ordered to series “Art Breakers,” a reality program that promises to take viewers inside the high-stakes, high-priced world of art collecting.

It focuses on art advisors Miller Gaffney and Carol Lee Brosseau as they accommodate their clients’ eclectic tastes. This includes soliciting a nude portrait for a quirky client, throwing a star-studded gallery opening, and digging through celebrity estate sales to turn up the best in Hollywood memorabilia.

“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, EVP of programming and production for Ovation TV. “In this series, Ovation viewers will get a ring-side seat as they take us along on some of their most challenging assignments.”

“Art Breakers” is produced for Ovation TV by by Story Monster TV, with executive producers Alex Duda, John Rieber and Emerlee Nelford. Greg Spring is Co-Executive Producer.

The series is set to premiere at 8 pm ET October 4 on Ovation TV.

    If the clip I saw of the show was meant to pull viewers in – it had the opposite effect on me. I found both women highly irritating. Are we to be impressed because they are advising Mario Lopez (equally irritating) on art purchases? Prancing around in tight dresses and high heels isn’t art (or maybe it is . . ). But to be fair I will give the show a try – maybe they really know their stuff and aren’t as arrogant as they come across.

    Good luck with the show. Why not follow two people in the art world?
