Couric's debut episode will be all about the ladies. She'll sit down with singer and new mom Jessica Simpson, and Grammy winner Sheryl Crow.

According to Entertainment Weekly, episode two will feature "Aimee Copeland, the 24-year-old Georgia graduate student who lost parts of all her limbs to a rare flesh-eating bacteria this summer." She'll also interview Raffaele Sollecito, the ex-boyfriend of Amanda Knox who was acquitted of murder, as well as the mother and sister of slain college lacrosse player Yeardley Love.
