OWN Goes After a Piece of the Red-Hot Talent-Contest Market

Sep 16, 2011  •  Post A Comment

The public’s hunger for TV talent shows — “American Idol,” “The Voice” and countless others — appears to be insatiable, and now Oprah Winfrey’s OWN will try to tap into it, the New York Post reports.

OWN has ordered six episodes of "Secret Talent Scout," which will feature talent scouts giving their "finds" big breaks before revealing their identities, the story says.

The show, which does not have an airdate yet, comes from Zodiak USA, producer of "Secret Millionaire" for ABC, the story notes.

OWN, which is still in its first year on the air, continues to struggle to turn around its sluggish ratings after a slow start.
