Time to check out the new and improved Ovation TV

Good piece today by the Associated Press’ Lynn Elber on this week’s relaunch of Ovation TV. It bodes well for the channel that former Bravo and Trio exec Kris Slava is running the ship. He was intimately involved in Trio’s “Brilliant but Canceled” series and thus knows and thing or two about too-cool TV. Ovation is sticking with its arts and culture milieu, but instead of a string of short clips of opera and classical music performances, there’ll be much more of a cohesive programming flow to the primetime sked. Weeknights will be skedded according to broad themes, with Mondays devoted to performance, particularly dance and theater; Tuesdays is all about artistes, with profiles, docs and features about painters, sculptors and the like; etc. etc., as laid out in Elber’s story. This week’s relaunch is anchored by a series dubbed “American Revolutionaries,” a look at mavericks and trailblazers ranging from Frank Lloyd Wright to Kurt Cobain.
