OWN: OPRAH WINFREY NETWORK ANNOUNCES PREMIERE OF "SUPER SOUL SUNDAY" TO LAUNCH SUNDAY, OCTOBER 16

Three-Hour Sunday Morning Programming Block to Feature 'Oprah's Soul Series,' Short Films Produced by Rainn Wilson's "Soul Pancake" and Thought-Provoking Documentaries

Los Angeles, CA - OWN: Oprah Winfrey Network announced today the launch of "Super Soul Sunday" a three-hour Sunday morning programming block scheduled to premiere Sunday, October 16 (8-11 a.m. ET/PT).

Designed to help viewers awaken to their best selves and discover a deeper connection to the world around them, programs featured in "Super Soul Sunday" will include never before seen episodes of "Oprah's Soul Series," a series of in-depth, one-on-one conversations between Oprah and some of the most fascinating authors, thinkers and spiritual leaders of our time, uplifting feature-length documentaries, short-form content from Soul Pancake (the production company co-founded by "The Office's" Rainn Wilson) and more.

Exploring themes and issues including happiness and personal fulfillment, wellness, spirituality and conscious living, these programs present an array of perspectives on what it means to be alive in today's world.

The first two Sundays of the new three-hour block will feature:

Sunday, October 16 (8-11 a.m. ET/PT): "The World Beyond"

Is there more to life than we can see? Oprah interviews Jonas Elrod, a young filmmaker who says he woke up one day and suddenly began seeing angels, demons, auras and ghosts. In the world television premiere of Elrod's thought-provoking film "Wake Up," directed by Elrod and Chloe Crespi and produced by Steve Hutensky, Elrod and his loving, but skeptical girlfriend Mara Evans travel the country seeking answers to his puzzling spiritual awakening from physicians, religious teachers, mystics and spiritual healers. How could a God-fearing man born in a God-fearing town in the South believe he can access other dimensions? Following the documentary, Oprah interviews Evans to discover what it's like to live with Elrod as he grapples with his uncanny "gift." Plus, the debut of a series of short films that explore "life's big questions," produced exclusively for "Super Soul Sunday" by Soul Pancake, the production company of "The Office's" Rainn Wilson.

Sunday, October 23 (8-11 a.m. ET/PT): "Crazy Sexy Life"

Can facing death teach us how to live? The breakthrough documentary "Crazy Sexy Cancer" tells the story of Kris Carr, a young aspiring actress diagnosed with advanced stage cancer. Carr documents her search for answers as she delves into the world of holistic medicine and alternative health, with poignant, thought-provoking and sometimes funny results. Heartfelt and gripping, "Crazy Sexy Cancer," directed by Carr and produced by Carr and Brian Fassett, is the story of one woman who went looking for a cure and found her life. Then, Carr talks about how her life has changed since the film's release and she invites "Super Soul Sunday" to her farm for an update on how she's doing today. Also, Oprah continues the conversation with best-selling author Kathy Freston who teaches us how to reach our highest level of health and contentment through small, focused changes. Plus, a fresh, funny look at the world through the lens of Soul Pancake.
