Oprah Winfrey Videos
America's favorite daytime talk show host, Oprah Winfrey, and her Harpo Films banner have entered into an agreement with HBO to develop and produce a range of projects for the network, including scripted series, miniseries, documentaries, and movies. The deal will include made-for-TV programming and will not include theatrical projects. No specific properties or details have been revealed at press time.
Harpo was previously set up with a similar development deal with ABC, but that arrangement recently came to a close. Harpo chose to go with a pay network because there are fewer limitations on subject matter and commercial sponsorships.
