Casting calls posted on the OWN web site give a few clues to what Oprah Winfrey’s new network has planned, B&C reports.
Casting is going on for a show featuring professional locator Pam Slaton, which seems to be in the genre of programs that reunite people who have been searching for long lost relatives, friends, lovers or others.
The network also wants home cooks who want to interact via Skype with chef Cristina Ferrare. And there’s a call out for “parents and professionals who have a goal they’ve always wanted to accomplish but never achieved."
The network’s lineup is supposed to be unveiled at the April 8 Discovery Networks upfront. OWN–the Oprah Winfrey Network–is a co-venture between Winfrey’s Harpo Productions and Discovery Communications.
