The Oprah Winfrey Network, set to launch in early 2010, announced on Thursday some of the programs in development for the TV channel, which will replace Discovery Health. The Oprah Winfrey Network has been described as the first network about living your own best life.
Among the shows in development is "Master Class" (working title), which will profile the most extraordinary people of our time, hand-picked by Winfrey herself. These people will share with viewers who they really are -- their passions and best life lessons. "Surfer's Healing" is a docusoap produced by Snackaholic about former competitive surfer Izzy Paskowitz, his wife Danielle, their three children (one of whom is autistic) and their surf school business. "Excellent Adventure" will follow celebrities and their best friends as they embark on the adventures they've always dreamed of taking.
And in "Exposed: Lisa Ling Investigates," Ling will explore offbeat worlds and examine aspects of news stories viewers might otherwise not see.
