July 01, 2009 11:31 AM by Britteny Elrick


It’s time to take a walk on the artsy side. Sarah Jessica Parker is making a TV comeback, except this time she’ll be in the driver’s seat. Sarah’s production company, Pretty Matches, began working on a Project Runway like reality TV series for Bravo. The show is currently untitled and willfeature a competition between 13 artists of various genres: painting, photography, and design.

According to the Bravo press release:

Golden Globe and Emmy Award winner Sarah Jessica Parker and her production company, Pretty Matches, will team with the Emmy-nominated Magical Elves (“Top Chef,” “Project Runway”) and Eli Holzman, to produce “American Artist” (working title), an hour long creative competition series among contemporary artists. “American Artist” will bring together twelve aspiring artists to compete for a gallery show, a cash prize and a sponsored national tour.

In each episode, contestants will create unique works of art highlighting art’s role in everyday life, while they compete and create in a range of disciplines including sculpture, painting, photography and industrial design. In working beyond their preferred mediums, artists will have to adapt quickly to changes in order to succeed. Completed works of art will be appraised by a panel of top art world figures including fellow artists, gallerists, collectors, curators and critics. The finalists’ work will be showcased in a nation-wide museum tour. “American Artist” is produced by Magical Elves and Pretty Matches for Bravo. Dan Cutforth, Jane Lipsitz, Sarah Jessica Parker, Alison Benson and Eli Holzman serve as executive producers.
