The Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN) will launch in over 80 million households on January 1, 2011. If you’d like unprecedented access to witnessing a new network being born, you can become an “OWN TV Insider”.
One initiative is something called, “Oprah’s Search for the Next TV Star: Your OWN Show”. People can submit an online audition tape of their idea for a show, which is voted on by the online community. My pal and former MTV co-worker, Priya, has submitted an excellent idea for a show which you can check out and vote for here.
We’ll be watching as OWN develops its programming slate to see if this network will reboot the media!
