Oprah Winfrey Starts “Next Chapter,” Will Launch New Primetime Series Next Year

It’s no Oprah show, but fans of the former talk show host can expect  to see much more of Winfrey on the small screen again…and  soon.

The media mogul is set to launch “Oprah’s Next Chapter” on her Oprah Winfrey  Network (OWN) early next year, which will showcase Winfrey traveling around the  world interviewing celebrities, newsmakers, leaders and real-life families,  according to the network’s website.

“After 25 years, I got myself out of the studio chairs,” Winfrey said in a  statement. “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. 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,” Winfrey continued.

The primetime show, which is set to premiere Jan. 1, 2012 with a two-hour  episode, will first feature an interview with Aerosmith frontman Steven Tyler in his  New Hampshire home, where the two will discuss his former drug addiction, his  love life and American Idol fame.

Other episodes will include a slumber party at Food Network star Paula Deen‘s Georgia estate, a visit with Star Wars creator George  Lucas at his Skywalker Ranch and a trip to Haiti with Sean Penn.
