ASK OPRAH'S ALL STARS

On an all-new season of "Ask Oprah's All Stars," Dr. Phil, Suze Orman and Dr. Oz team up to answer the most pressing viewer questions about health, wealth and mental well-being. Hosted by Gayle King, the season will feature specially themed episodes: Ultimate Checklists, That's Embarrassing!, Is This Normal?, Love, Sex & More, 20 Questions for 20-Somethings and Myths, Secrets & Confessions. Also, there's a surprising update for season one's 52-year old virgin. It's an hour of tell-it-like-it-is advice from America's and Oprah's favorite experts. Produced by Stage 29 Productions.

DON'T TELL THE BRIDE

What happens when you give a cash-strapped couple $25,000 to create their dream wedding? A lot of drama when the bride and groom are separated three weeks leading up to the nuptials, and the groom must plan the wedding with no help from his fiancée. The bride won't see the invitation until it arrives in the mail, she'll try on her dress just prior to walking down the aisle, and will see the reception for the first time with the other guests. "Don't Tell the Bride" promises tantrums and tears of joy before the "big day" is done. Narrated by Caroline Rhea ("Sabrina, the Teenage Witch"), the series is produced by Shed Media U.S. and based on a series format from Renegade Pictures and Digital Rights Group.

OPRAH'S LIFECLASS - formerly known as "Your OWN Life (the oprah class)"

In this all-new eight-week series, Oprah reaches back through the 25-year history of "The Oprah Winfrey Show" to teach the lessons that matter most to her. Oprah will share her most personal revelations, and what she thinks now about those iconic show moments and guests. The series will also feature a companion online class accompanying the series including actual course work on Oprah.com, for an even more enriching experience. Produced by Harpo Productions.

OUR AMERICA WITH LISA LING

The new season of "Our America with Lisa Ling" delves into some of the most challenging, thought-provoking issues in society today. With stories ranging from polygamy and amateur porn, to sex trafficking and veterans with PTSD, Ling immerses herself into the lives of everyday Americans and captures their in-depth experiences firsthand. These stories provide viewers a window into worlds largely unseen and a deeper understanding of what's really going on in subcultures of "Our America" today. Produced by part2 pictures.

THE ROSIE SHOW

Rosie O'Donnell makes her return to television with a new original talk show on OWN. At its heart is Rosie's genuine desire to entertain, inspire and connect with America. Rosie will cover current events, spotlight hometown heroes and newsmakers, showcase the arts, celebrate kids and families, as well as feature well-known and upcoming talent. Whether it's hilarious comedy and game segments, a live performance by a recording artist, a celebrity visit or a discussion of an important issue, "The Rosie Show's" fresh and candid exploration of a wide variety of subjects will encourage all of us to laugh, love and live our best lives. Produced by Harpo Studios in association with KidRo Productions, Inc. and SantaBu Productions.

VISIONARIES: INSIDE THE CREATIVE MIND

The hour-long documentary series follows some of the world's most iconic innovators and takes audiences inside their creative process, offering never-before-seen views of true masterminds at work. Debuting with filmmaker Tyler Perry, and featuring fashion icon Tom Ford, filmmaker James Cameron, musician will.i.am, and world-renowned photographer Annie Leibovitz, these celebrated creative artists reveal the experiences, challenges and rewards of bringing their ideas to life. With unprecedented access, this series provides unique insight into what made these visionaries who they are and what continues to inspire them. Produced by @radical.media.

WELCOME TO SWEETIE PIE'S

When Robbie Montgomery - one of the original back-up singers for 1960s soul duo sensation Ike and Tina Turner - toured with the band, she poured her creative gifts into her cooking as much as her singing. After the singing stopped, Robbie took her mother's soul food recipes, passed down through generations, and created the empire known as "Sweetie Pie's," St. Louis' iconic and wildly popular soul food restaurant run by Robbie and her dynamic family. With two successful locations, Miss Robbie is upping the ante and preparing to open a third restaurant with the help of her son and business partner, Tim. While Tim and his girlfriend, Jenae, also prepare for the birth of their first child - and their wedding - Miss Robbie, who has never been married, continues to look for love at the age of 71. "Welcome to Sweetie Pie's" follows the loud, loving and still very musical Montgomery family as they struggle with the demands of expanding their family-owned business, one soulful dish at a time. Produced by Pilgrim Films & Television.
