Oprah Winfrey Will Be Producing Original Content For Apple!
Oprah Winfrey just signed a multi-year deal with Apple to produce original programming.
“Together, Winfrey and Apple will create original programs that embrace her incomparable ability to connect with audiences around the world,” the company said in a statement. “Winfrey’s projects will be released as part of a lineup of original content from Apple.”
It’s unclear whether Oprah will appear in the shows herself or if she’ll strictly take a producing hat, but Apple made it clear it wouldn’t interfere with her contract at OWN.
Apple has recently made similar deals with the likes of Reese Witherspoon, Steven Spielberg, Octavia Spencer, and Kevin Durant, while Netflix has signed former President Barack and former First Lady Michelle Obama in a multiyear deal as well as Shonda Rhimes and Ryan Murphy.
