James Franco is getting a reality show because, you know, James Franco

James Franco is getting a show to express his James Franco-ness even more.
James Franco is getting a show to express his James Franco-ness even more.

In James Franco news, James Franco has done something very James Franco-y because, you know, James Franco.

Hollywood’s hardest working Renaissance Man and Jack of Every Single Freaking Trade You Can Imagine (no, seriously, just think of something obscure and maybe a little bit pretentious — betcha James Franco has done it) has announced that he will soon have his own reality show.

The show, according to Variety, will air sometime in November and will be called “James Franco Presents.” What will he be presenting, you ask? That’s a stupid question. He’ll be presenting James Franco, in all his Franco-ness, as he explores his one billion different artistic pursuits. #JamesFranco. (The above photo was posted to his Instagram, with the caption “New show, with me, and a bunch of crazy stuff. Announcement tomorrow.” late last night.)

On a serious note, however, we’ll probably tune in when it debuts because — despite the fact that James Franco’s determination to do Everything That Could Possibly Qualify as a Thing — we’re still not tired of him. He’s an affable, funny (dudes, if you haven’t seen “This Is the End” yet, do it), talented, easy-on-the-eyes guy. And while we hate him for that a little (share the wealth, bro) we also love him for that a little.

But yes, this is some next level James Franco sh—t.
