Julia Roberts and Goldie Hawn have agreed to to produce documentaries for the upcoming Oprah Winfrey Network (OWN), the New York Daily News reports.

Roberts will create and narrate a film called "Extraordinary Moms," which examines mothers who have tried to make the world better, while Hawn will produce, host and narrate "Searching for Happiness," which looks at positive psychology, the story says.

Separately, OWN has confirmed that it’s had early discussions with Sarah Ferguson, the Dutchess of York, about a show on the new network. In that show the Duchess would be the focus of a docu-series, not, as some media outlets have said, a talk show host, reports the New York Post.

 As previously reported, OWN had talked with Ferguson this month about doing a show on her network, which is scheduled to debut in January.

Ferguson, who is reportedly deep in debt, hasn’t yet agreed to the idea, the New York Post says. It’s more likely the show would be filmed in the U.S. instead of Britain, given that the Duchess is unpopular because she was taped trying to sell access to her ex-husband, Prince Andrew, to a reporter posing as a businessman.

If the show were filmed in the U.K., she would require permission from the royal family because she lives at Andrew’s official home in Windsor, the story adds.
