Marcom Weekly StaffJanuary 11, 2021

Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) announced the launch of “SuperSoul,” a series of thought-provoking, eye-opening and inspiring discussions hosted by Oprah Winfrey and produced by OWN, to stream exclusively on discovery+ starting later this month.

The subscription streaming service boasts the largest-ever content offering of any new streaming service at launch, and “SuperSoul” joins more than 50 exclusive original titles available on the service during its launch month.

As OWN celebrates our 10th anniversary on-air, I continue to find personal inspiration from these in-depth conversations. My hope is that these interviews allow space for intriguing self-reflection as viewers awaken to their best selves and discover a deeper connection to the world around them,” said Oprah Winfrey, CEO, OWN.

The critically acclaimed series, which is based on the three-time Emmy Award-winning television series “SuperSoul Sunday,” features conversations between Oprah Winfrey and entertainment industry legends about what it means to be alive in today’s world. Some of the top thinkers to join her include Cicely Tyson (“Just As I Am”); Priyanka Chopra Jonas (“Unfinished”); Sharon Stone (“The Beauty of Living Twice”); and Julianna Margulies (“Sunshine Girl”) to share about their career touchpoints and how they overcame their unique challenges and societal bias to persevere and use their voice to inspire others.

Oprah will also inspire people with New York Times best-selling author Martha Beck, American historian Jon Meacham, and home and lifestyle brand leaders Chip & Joanna Gaines through intimate conversations about the pivotal moments in their lives.

“There has never been a more important time to inspire the world with Oprah’s singular voice than right now, through this thought-provoking exploration of perseverance, exclusively on discovery+” said David Zaslav, president and CEO of Discovery, Inc. “‘SuperSoul’ from Oprah exemplifies our deep commitment to empowering discovery+ customers to stream what they love through our ambitious and growing slate of originals.”

“SuperSoul” is produced by OWN as a discovery+ Original. Executive producers are Oprah Winfrey and Tara Montgomery. Audio versions of these interviews will be available in podcast form the week after each stream, wherever podcasts are available, with OWN airing the interviews later this year.
