Ovation TV’s ‘On the Road With Will.i.am’

Ovation TV is developing an hourlong scripted drama series called HotArt, based on the book by Canadian journalist Joshua Knelman, Hot Art: Chasing Thieves and Detectives Through the Secret World of Stolen Art.

Set in London, the center of the global art market, the show follows a squad of elite Scotland Yard undercover police agents tasked with solving art crimes… and catching the criminals who aim to keep one step ahead of them.

UK-based writer Simeon Thornton will pen the adaptation and Storyscape Entertainment’s Bob Cooper will produce.
