From Sun-Times staff reports ...

Oprah Winfrey's grasp of all things media just got a little bit tighter.

HBO announced they have entered into a three-year exclusive relationship with Harpo Films to develop and produce movies and miniseries for the pay cable network.

No specific projects were mentioned, but a written release indicated the arrangement could include miniseries, movies, documentaries and series.

Harpo Films is the arm of Winfrey's Harpo Productions group that in the past has produced feature films "The Great Debaters" (2007, starring Denzel Washington and Forest Whitaker) and "Beloved" (1998, starring Winfrey and Danny Glover) as well as TV movies such as "Tuesdays With Morrie" and "Their Eyes Were Watching God."

More information came out in a teleconference today.
