Discovery to Bring Oprah to the U.K.

OWN, the Oprah Winfrey Network, and Discovery Networks International have partnered to launch a new programming block featuring OWN series in the U.K.

The block, which will premiere on the soon-to-launch TLC channel in the U.K., marks a drive to bring broad-based general entertainment content to TLC and to bring OWN content to DNI’s female flagship channels in the future.

“We are so proud to build on the great success that we have had airing ‘Oprah’s Next Chapter’ with Lance Armstrong and Justin Bieber,” says Luis Silberwasser, executive vice president and chief content officer, DNI. “This is the next phase in showcasing the content that is like no other, the kind that only Oprah and her team at OWN can deliver.”

Among the shows that will be included are “Oprah’s Next Chapter,” “Oprah’s Master Class,” “Oprah’s Lifeclass” and “Super Soul Sunday.”

OWN will continue its partnership with Passion Distribution to distribute other OWN programming internationally.
