Here’s a first look at Oprah Winfrey’s new series, Oprah’s Next Chapter. Before her daytime talk show went off the air Oprah said she would be doing another show that would take her to different places outside of a studio. Now the show is set to premiere at the beginning of next year.
“After 25 years I got myself out of the studio chairs. I moved into the next chapter, and I am having more fun than ever – moving around the country and the world talking to people I’m really interested in getting to know and I think viewers will be, too,” said Oprah. “It is so energizing to be out and about in the world exploring new people, new places and new ideas.”
“I sat at the dinner table with a Hasidic Jewish family and tried to explain to the children who have never seen a television what TV is…can you imagine? I fire-walked with Tony Robbins—never pictured myself doing that! I celebrated the power of God and community with Joel Osteen and I’m planning a trip with Deepak Chopra to India where I’ve never been.”
The debut episode will feature Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler at his home in New Hampshire. The show airs January 1, 2012, for a two-hour premiere event from 9-11 p.m. ET/PT. The series continues in its regular time period beginning Sunday, January 8 (9:00 – 10:00 p.m. ET/PT).
