The network has 22 shows lined up, including The Gayle King Show, Season 25: Oprah Behind the Scenes and Your OWN Show: Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star.
According to IMDB, she is listed as executive producer of Extraordinary Moms, a TV documentary starring Julia Roberts, as well as Serving Life, a documentary starring Forest Whitaker.
Oprah also has her O: The Oprah Magazine to keep her busy, as well as her Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.
