Oprah Winfrey is debuting a new television program in January with her new series Oprah’s Next Chapter that will air on her cable network, the channel said Friday. In the new series, the media mogul will step "outside of the studio for some riveting, enlightening in-depth conversations with newsmakers, celebrities, thought leaders and real-life families," according to the statement from ‘OWN’ Oprah Winfrey Network.
"After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever -- moving around the country and the world talking to people I’m really interested in getting to know," the New York Post quoted Winfrey as saying. The program will premiere on Jan. 1 with an in-depth conversation with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler at his home in New Hampshire.
Subsequent episodes in the show’s first season will feature Oscar winner Sean Penn’s humanitarian work in Haiti, a tour of "Star Wars" creator George Lucas’ ranch and a look at chef Paula Deen’s Georgia estate.
